In the minors last night the Smokies has a combined no hitter going against the Biscuits - 1 strike away:

Smokies… Biscuits - anyone else want some pigs in a blanket?

Looks like good pitching on both sides, w/ Pinto not only killing the no-no but also ending/winning that game on the same hit.
Another reason to get your money’s worth and stay for the last out…
Thanks for sharing this!

This is supposed to be AA baseball and not the friggin’ Dominican Summer League…

Fredericksburg of the Low A East league (they’re a Nationals affiliate) dropped another game tonight to fall to 0-15 to start the season.

They’ve been outscored 154-39 this year.

From Sunday: Pensacola Blue Wahoos 7, Biloxi Shuckers 6 (final)

Shuckers pitcher entered the game with his team leading 6-4 and had a pretty crappy bottom of the 9th to lose it…

This is how you do a no-hitter in the complex leagues…

Yes, the losing team was the one who pitched the no-no. Despite having 9 hits in the game.

In addition to the 5 errors which aided in the run-scoring by the Cardinals, Nats pitchers issued 5 walks and uncorked a couple of wild pitches and plunked a batter.

The Cardinals swiped 4 bases as well including a steal of home.

Was the losing pitcher Ken Johnson’s grandson?
