No-hitter in minors

 

Three Pittsburgh Pirates farmhands combined on a no-hitter in the visiting Indianapolis Indians’ 2-0 victory over the Durham (N.C.) Bulls on Sunday in the International League. Winning pitcher Justin Wilson struck out nine in 7 1/3 innings for the Indians before he was relieved in the eighth by Jose Diaz, who retired the only two batters he faced. Doug Slaten got three groundouts in the ninth, with Reid Brignac bouncing out to second baseman Anderson Hernandez to end the no-hitter. Indianapolis allowed only two baserunners. Durham, Tampa Bay’s top farm club, was no-hit for the first time since 2004 and has lost 13 in a row. – AP
