Minor League Bats Are Feeling The Effects Of The Dog Days Of Summer

On Friday, minor league baseball saw three no-hitters and a one-hitter among the 100+ games on the daily schedule.  The pitching dominance continued into Saturday – “only” one no-hitter, but at least three one-hitters and several games in which starters pitched extremely well before the bullpen imploded just enough to knock it down a notch or two on the Awesome Game Scale.

Milciades Santana, DSL Blue Jays: 7 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 BB, 8 SO
Luis Noel, DSL Orioles: 8 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 9 SO
Jean Tome, Pulaski: 8 IP, 1 R, 1 H, 1 BB, 9 SO

The crowning achievement came in the Florida State League where four Daytona pitchers combined to no-hit the Dunedin Blue Jays. Remarkably, only two Blue Jays struck out in the entire game.
