Four Sky Sox Pitchers Combine for No-Hitter

By  | 

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma City has suddenly become a haven
for no-hitters in the minor leagues.

Four Colorado Springs pitchers combined to hold the Oklahoma City RedHawks hitless on Tuesday night in the second no-hitter at the Bricktown Ballpark in five days.

Luis Mendoza of the RedHawks threw a no-hitter against Salt Lake City on Friday night.

Jhoulys Chacin got this one started by going the first 5 1-3 innings in his Triple-A debut. The Colorado Rockies had called up Chacin from Double-A Tulsa, and he made his first major league start last week.

Joel Peralta got the final two outs of the sixth inning, Juan Rincon threw two perfect innings, and Randy Flores finished off the 5-0 victory with a perfect ninth inning.

It was the fourth no-hitter in Sky Sox history.
