Dodge City fans certainly got their money's worth at Boot Hill. Chien-Ming
Wang(6-7) pitched a rare no-hitter as the Dodge City Dirtnappers toppled the
Bethlehem Beaz 5 to 0.

Wang was just too much for Bethlehem. He gave his hometown fans a game
they'll never forget! He walked 2 Bethlehem batters. The tension started to
build around the 6th inning. By the 9th inning the crowd was electrified.
Dodge City had 9 hits for the night.

Roy Halladay(11-5) was the losing pitcher. He was unable to control the Dodge
City offense and allowed 9 hits and 2 walks in 6 and 2/3 innings.

'You probably have a better chance of winning the lottery than this
happening,' said Wang, 'I don't expect it to sink in for awhile,' he said.
'I'm numb right now, I'm overwhelmed.'
