MINOR LEAGUE BASEBALL: Four Curve pitchers combine to fire no-hitter
MANCHESTER, N.H. — Four pitchers combined on a no-hitter in the Altoona Curve’s 5-0 win over the New Hampshire Fisher Cats on Thursday night.
Ethan Hollingsworth, Jason Townsend, Jhonathan Ramos and Ryan Beckman combined for the second no-hitter in the 14-year history of the Curve. The first occurred on April 23, 2002.
Hollingsworth retired the first nine batters he faced and lasted four innings. He allowed one baserunner, a hit batsman. Townsend then came in and threw three innings, allowing just one walk, and Ramos and Beckman fired one perfect inning apiece.
