A's lefthander Chris Salamida tossed a complete game shutout striking out 13 batters and giving up just four hits to lead the Haack Division leader Albany Athletics to a 4-0 victory over the Tholl Division leader Waterford Nationals.  It was the A's 10th straight win to open league play.  Salamida earned his third win of the season and also went 1-for-3 at the plate with a run scored. Meanwhile, Greg Sulz got the A's on the board in the 1st inning on an RBI single but Waterford pitching held down the Albany offense until the 5th when Nate Novak single in Salamida to make it 2-0. An inning later, Austin Lawrence drove home Antony Mantova on a sac fly, and in the 7th Steve DeLuca hit a leadoff home run to extend the lead to 4-0.    Ivan Plata singled and doubled, and Nick Thomas doubled, for the Nationals but got stranded on base.
