Royals Spellbound, *Silverspike Hurls No-Hitter
Friday, May 5th, 2028
No hitters are rare. But the fans at Royals Stadium received a special gift as Legeron *Silverspike of the Darkwings tossed a no-hitter against the Rivendell Royals. He was masterful as he struck out 8 and walked 1 in a 1-0 Ravenhill victory. In all *Silverspike faced only 28 batters. *Silverspike did not appear to have his best stuff in the early innings, but soon got into a groove and made quick work of the Royals. He was helped by several defensive gems along the way.
The Rivendell manager said to the press after the no-hitter, "We had our chances in the first few innings, when he was hittable, but he shut us down totally in the last 4-5 innings."
"I had late movement that seemed to cause them a lot of trouble, especially from the fifth inning on," *Silverspike said to reporters.
This season *Silverspike has fanned 48 in 46.1 innings and collected a 4-2 record with a 4.08 ERA.Posted at September 12, 2013 07:45 PM | more from Ravenhill
