Three Muckdogs combine on perfect game

Three Batavia Muckdogs pitchers combined for a perfect game Wednesday night in a 1-0 victory over the Mahoning Valley Scrappers in a New York-Penn League game at Dwyer Stadium in Batavia.

Gabriel Castellanos, a 21-year-old left-hander from the Dominican Republic, pitched the first seven innings, striking out 12. Brett Lilek, a left-hander from Arizona State, pitched the eighth, striking out the side. Right-hander Steve Farnsworth from Cal Poly-Poma, struck out one in pitching the ninth for the Miami Marlins affiliate.

The Muckdogs’ run came in the second inning when Korey Dunbar doubled with one out and came home on a double by Taylor Munden, who played at West Virginia University.
