Clinton (Iowa) LumberKings pitcher Victor Sanchez pitched a complete game no-hitter Wednesday night, allowing just three base-runners in a 1-0 home victory. Two runners reached on errors and the third was hit by a Sanchez pitch.
Lansing had gone hitless in a game just once in its first 17 seasons, but the Lugnuts (38-56) have now blanked three times in just 94 games in 2013. Lansing, an affiliate of the Blue Jays, was also no-hit in seven innings on April 14 against South Bend and against Bowling Green last month.
The 18-year-old Sanchez, who started 15 games for the Everett AquaSox last season, was the first Clinton pitcher since 2011 to throw a complete game no-hitter.
