Raptors start with shutout
Joe Shere and Brett Fredricks limited the Lebanon Whitetails to two hits in a 7-0 Raptors win.
Jon Kas drove in the the only run the Raptors needed in the top of first, and Shere added a sacrifice fly in the second as Milton opened up an early 4-0 lead.
Shere struck out nine in seven innings of work. Matt Fredricks led the Milton offense by going 3-for-4.
The Raptors will play at the Farmington Braves next Sunday.
