Santos Canseco No-Hits Salem
Congratulations are in order to Durham Bulls starting pitcher Santos Canseco, who hurled his first career no-hitter in todays PM game versus the Salem Oles. Santos only needed 110 pitches to toss his no-no, allowing only three walks in Durham's 5-0 victory over the Oles in front of a packed house at Durham's Athletic Park on Bart Kirby Bobblehead day. He was perfect for the first 6 1/3 inning until he issued back-to-back walks to Pablo Ordonez and Mitch Ledee, but worked his way out of trouble by inducing a ground out by Keith Higginson and then whiffing Al Rosado to end the inning. The only other runner to reach base for Salem was John Blake on a ninth inning walk.
Bulls owner betrand93 celebrated Canseco's feat by immediately raising the price of all Santos Canseco items in the Bulls gift shop by 33%.
