Four pitchers combined for a six-hit shutout for Double-A Springfield on Saturday. Making his first start of the year, Deryk Hooker pitched the first three innings. Michael Blazek, who was just moved from the rotation to the bullpen, followed with a four-inning appearance. Eric Fornataro and Keith Butler finished off the 1-0 win.
