JJ Pearsall, Bryan Carr and Zach Breen combined for a no-hitter and fanned 12 Waterford batters as the Albany Athletics won their 12th consecutive Opening Day Twilight League game over the Nationals at Bleecker Stadium. THe game is traditionally a rematch of the previous years Championship Series (A's beat Nationals in 2017 ATLCS).    Nate Novak drew a bases loaded walk to break a scoreless tie in the third inning then a batter later, Craig Mastroinni drove in a run on a fielders choice.  In the 4th inning, Cam Overbaugh, who had two hits in the game, doubled then Chris Salamida singled him in to stake the A's to a 3-0 lead.  Albany tacked on another run on a wild pitch and ground out.
