USFBL - 2012 - 15th No-Hitter!

John Danks(2-3) thrilled the fans at Petco Park as he crafted a no-hit masterpiece against the Hawaii Poi Pounders.  The Kansas City Fountains won by a final score of 1 to 0.

Danks was obviously at the top of his game as he set the Hawaii batters down like so many dominoes.  He walked 6 Hawaii batters.  The Kansas City players and coaches started to leave Danks alone with his thoughts after the game reached the 7th inning.  By the time the 9th inning rolled around, you could
hear a pin drop every time he went to his wind-up - and an explosion after every out.  Hawaii was set down quietly in the bottom of the 9th.

Vance Worley(4-11) was the losing pitcher.  After the game, Danks was heard to say, 'This is something I have dreamt about since I was a little boy - to have it come true is just amazing!'
