USFBL - 2015 - 22nd No - Hitter!

David Price(11-8) thrilled the fans at Angels Stadium as he crafted a no-hit masterpiece against the Starkville Cool Papas.  The Los Angeles Anteaters won by a final score of 1 to 0.

Price had his best stuff and was 'painting the black' with every pitch.  A beautiful game to watch.  He only walked one Starkville batter.  The tension started to build around the 6th inning.  By the 9th inning the crowd was electrified.  Price racked up 11 strikeouts.  The Starkville batters went
down meekly in the bottom of the 9th.

Miguel Gonzalez(8-6) was the losing pitcher.  He gave up 3 hits and 2 walks in 5 innings.  'I gave it everything I had. It's probably the greatest day of my life,' Price said. 'I was out there focusing on my catcher's glove, that's all. I just concentrated on pitching my game.'

USFBL - 2015 - 21st No - Hitter!

The Kansas City Fountains pitching staff gave the fans an afternoon that they'll never forget by tossing a combined no-hitter! The tension started to build around the 6th inning.  By the 9th inning the crowd was electrified.  Kansas City totaled 9 hits on the afternoon.

The win was credited to Jerad Eickhoff(1-0) who went 7 innings allowing no runs. Jesse Hahn(0-1) was hit with the loss.  'You probably have a better chance of winning the lottery than this happening,' said Eickhoff who got credit for the win, 'I don't expect it to sink in for awhile.' he said. 'You
know, it's hard to say who was better, the starter or the bullpen!'

USFBL - 2015 - 20th No - Hitter!

Gloucester fans certainly got their money's worth at Turner Field.  Zack Greinke(11-0) pitched a rare no-hitter as the Minnesota Mud Dogs toppled the Gloucester Commandoes 6 to 0.

Greinke was spectacular.  He did not even surrender a walk.  The Minnesota players and coaches started to leave Greinke 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.  Minnesota banged out 12 hits on the night.

Mike Pelfrey(5-4) was charged with the loss.  It took a while to pry Greinke way from his teammates as they all wanted to show their appreciation and joy.  Finally, however, Scott Mueller got to offer his own congratulations with a big bear hug and the comment, 'That was one of the best pitched games I have seen in all my years in baseball - Greinke was masterful out there tonight!'
