Danny Muno Saves Rainiers From No-Hitter

Tacoma nearly got no-hit on Saturday night in Fresno, dropping the third game of the series by a 1-0 score.

Fresno starter Rogelio Armenteros no-hit the Rainiers for 7.1 innings. He was five outs away from a no-hitter when Danny Muno singled sharply into left field, a low liner beyond the reach of diving Fresno shortstop Reid Brignac.

That, however, was Tacoma’s only hit.

Tacoma has not been no-hit since the 2003 season, when left-hander Lindsay Gulin of Las Vegas pulled off the trick at Cashman Field.

Tacoma can still get a split of the series with a win tonight. It’s Fresno’s last home game of the season, while the Rainiers will fly home and play four games against Salt Lake this week.

Fresno is the Triple-A affiliate of the Houston Astros, and I’m sure many of their players have family and friends they are concerned about in Houston.

The flooding in Houston touches many in baseball. The state of Texas is a baseball hotbed, and many players make their homes in the greater Houston area. We wish them all the best.
