Captains Throw No-Hitter

MiLB.com

Carlton Smith's great June just got better.

The Lake County starter combined with two relievers for the first no-hitter in franchise history Sunday with a 2-0 shutout of Delmarva at Classic Park.

Smith (5-5) struck out four and walked one over a season-high seven innings.

The 21-year-old right-hander retired the first seven batters, fanning the side in the first inning, before yielding a one-out walk to Victor Castillo in the third. He set down the next 14 consecutive batters before being taken out after the seventh due to pitch count. He had thrown 68 pitches.

After posting a 6.42 ERA in the first two months of the season, Smith tossed six innings in a combined three-hit shutout June 1 against Lakewood. In his last start June 16, he allowed one run on four hits, while striking out four and walking one in five frames. He currently owns a 5.77 ERA.
