"I'm more happy with the approach at the plate today," Farrell said. "We were a lot more confident. It started with Warren (a team Fulton split with Saturday). Hitting is a contagious thing."
Newman never got anything going at the plate.
"He didn't have his good stuff today, but he battled through and we played good defense behind him," Farrell said. "He does a really good job of hitting spots. He knows the game of baseball well. He has a nice little curve and adds a knuckleball to his repertoire to keep teams off balance."
Jones, who even hit an RBI double in the game, said he was aware he was pitching a no-hitter on both occasions.
"I didn't want to say anything," he said. "When somebody says something, you get jinxes in the back of your mind.
"I was not thinking about the no-hitter, just thinking about making pitches and our guys making routine plays."
But the biggest part had nothing to do with what happened when the Steamers were on the field. The key was they gave Jones some offensive support this time.
