Four Red Wings pitchers held Lehigh Valley hitless, and Rochester posted a 7-0 win in the series opener Wednesday night at Frontier Field. Jeff Manship, Jake Stevens, Kyle Waldrop
and Jim Hoey
added their names to the Rochester baseball history books, with the 21st no-hitter in team history. Chase Lambin
drove in three runs for the Wings; the teams meet again Thursday and Friday nights at 7:05 p.m.
The Rochester franchise had 20 previous no-hitters, but never a combined effort. The last nine-inning no-hitter was by Wayne Garland against Charleston on April 20, 1974; the most recent Wings no-hitter was a seven-inning effort by Dan Boone against Syracuse on July 23, 1990. The franchise's first no-hitter? George Hay pitched it on this date in 1888, a 6-0 win over London July 6, 1888.
Wings starter Manship, out since May 22 with a sore shoulder, returned to the mound Wednesday and needed just 14 pitches to retire the IronPigs in the first inning
Manship completed four hitless innings, allowing just two walks and striking out two. He threw 51 pitches, 33 for strikes.
