Devils Facestomper Fires No-Hitter

Sunday, September 16th, 2040
The no-hitter is one of baseball’s truly egalitarian achievements. It’s done by the great and the not-so-great alike, and for nearly all of them it represents the pinnacle of a career. Dunharrow Devils pitcher Gruudash Facestomper had his moment today at Dunharrow Field, holding the Weathertop Witch Kings hitless and beating them, 4-0.

“Everything was working for him,” Witch Kings manager Rubella Lomldor said. “He had a lot of late movement that seemed to cause the guys trouble, especially from the fifth inning on. He was in command.”

Facestomper rung up 6 strikeouts, issued 2 walks and faced only 28 hitters in his historic outing. After the game, he spoke to BNN reporters in the Dunharrow locker room.

“I really got nervous in the last inning,” Facestomper recalled. “I knew I had a chance at a no-hitter but it was hard to stay calm and concentrate. Thank goodness for my catcher. He told me he would do all the thinking and I could just concentrate on hitting his glove.”

This season Facestomper has worked 227 innings with 184 strikeouts en route to a 14-7 record and a 2.30 ERA.
