18-Day No-Hitter Thrown By Two MiLB Players

Rochester Red Wings righty Logan Darnell finished a no-hitter against the Durham Bulls that took him over half a month to complete. He took the mound on July 24, when Darnell's teammate Trevor May took the mound and tossed three hitless frames. After those three innings the rain came pouring down.

May had been promoted to the Minnesota Twins so he was no longer able to pitch. A new name had to be called on.

This game was resumed on August 11 in Rochester. Darnell got to pitch in the continued game 18-days later. He no-hit the bulls for six innings. He received the win and capped off the Red Wings 22nd no-hitter in team history.

Darnell was promoted to the Twins on July 25 and made the first start of his Major League career on July 26, before being sent back to Rochester in time to finish in August what May had started in July.

Darnell is 0-1 with a 8.25 ERA over three appearances with the Twins this season. He has also given up 16 hits and 11 runs over that span.

May is 1-4 with a 9.38 ERA over six games played with the Twins during this season. He has a 2.13 WHIP and has struck out 15 batters.

Crazy story from the Minor League Baseball association.
