D-backs prospect Blayne Weller tosses no-hitter for Single-A South Bend
In particular, right-hander Blayne Weller.
Weller, a starter for Single-A South Bend, pitched the game of his life in the Silver Hawks' 7-1 road win over the Dayton Dragons.
The 24-year-old and native of Key West, Fla. tossed his first professional no-hitter, striking out a career-high 12 batters in the process.
Heading into the Midwest League contest, Weller had not gone more than six innings in a game this season.
Following his banner evening, the former 14th-round pick improved to 5-4 on the year with a 4.03 ERA.
In addition to Weller's gem, Silver Hawks infielder Andrew Velazquez reached base for the 69th consecutive game -- a streak that is two shy of the minor league record held by both Kevin Youkilis and Kevin Millar.
On the night, Velazquez walked three times and also reached base on a triple.
