Pitt-Bradford junior Aaron Cressley spun seven shutout innings Tuesday night to lead the New Market Rebels past the Staunton Braves 2-0 in Virginia Valley Baseball League action.

The right-hander pushed his scoreless innings streak to 28, a span of more than four starts. He improved to 4-0 yielding three hits and striking out six. He walked three, and only ran into trouble in the sixth inning when runners reached second and third with two outs. He induced a ground out to the next batter to end the frame.

With the start, he lowered his earned run average to 0.63, second only to Woodstock's Richard Winters (0.44). In 43 innings pitched for the Rebels, Cressley has struck out 37 batters and allowed just 32 hits.

The Corry, Pa., native was a second-team all-AMCC selection this spring for the Panthers after anchoring the pitching staff with a 2.25 ERA and 33 strikeouts.
