BANDITS TOSS FIRST SHUTOUT OF 2013: River Bandits right-hander Vincent Velasquez matched a career high with eight strikeouts in five shutout frames to extend his scoreless streak to 14 innings and win his third straight start in a 4-0 home victory over Lansing.

Left-hander Joe Bircher followed Velasquez with four scoreless innings to complete the first Quad Cities shutout since a 2-0 win Aug. 23 against Kane County.

Center fielder Teoscar Hernandez had two singles, two stolen bases, and two runs, and right fielder Terrell Joyce swatted his first Midwest League home run.
