LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) – It took a team effort to help make history for the Louisville Bats.
Tony Cingrani, David Holmberg, and Sam LeCure combined to throw the Louisville Bats' first ever nine-inning no-hitter. Their combined efforts helped the Bats defeat the Mud Hens 5-0 Sunday afternoon in Toledo .
Cingrani pitched the first four innings, Holmberg went the next three, and LeCure finished strong in the final two innings. The three pitchers totaled 12 strikeouts and four walks.
It was the first no hitter for the Bats franchise since May 14, 2000 when Larry Luebbers threw a seven-inning no-hitter in the first game of a doubleheader at Charlotte.
