West Virginia Power Lose No-Hitter In Ninth

Pirates' prospect Zach Von Rosenberg has had a rough season, but Friday night he looked to be getting things on track a little bit as he pitched six innings for the West Virginia Power without surrendering a hit or a walk while striking out six.

After his exit, Zachary Fusser entered and pitched 2.2 innings of no-hit ball until there were two outs in the ninth, and still no hits for the Power's opponent, the Delmarva Shorebirds. With two strikes, however, and Fusser only a pitch away from a combined no-no, he gave up a home run to Michael Mooney, foiling the bid in rather dramatic fashion. The Power did hold on to win 6-2.

While it's certainly disappointing to watch a no-hitter go by the boards that way, this is certainly a start Von Rosenberg can build off of. His 6.02 ERA is ugly, but if he turns in more performances like this next season, that number will plummet, and he'll be right back on track to help the Pirates in a few years.
