Vazquez No-Hits Kingston Cannons B

Rookie league pitcher Edgar Vazquez (OHI B) fired a no-hitter Saturday

It was a terrific day for Edgar Vazquez of the Key Largo Ohio Oxen B at Tallahasee Field today. The right-hander stood out with a fantastic 2-0 no-hitter against the Tallahassee Kingston Cannons B.

“I knew I had a no-no going in about the sixth inning, when I noticed no one was talking to me anymore,” he said, referring to the time-honored superstition of avoiding the pitcher so as not to jinx the no-hitter. “Don’t let people fool you. Everybody on the field and in the ballpark knows what’s happening. They just pretend they don’t.”

For the game, Vazquez totaled 1 walk and 7 strikeouts in a very strong outing.

“His mechanics were perfect and I don’t think he threw one bad pitch in the whole game,” Key Largo manager Bryan Williams said. “He was that good.”

This year Vazquez has a 4-1 mark in 6 starts with a 2.72 ERA. He has given up 29 hits in 43 innings, struck out 41 and issued 11 walks. Opposing clubs have compiled a .186 batting average against him.
