Darnell finishes no-hitter prospect May started
Triple-A left-hander allows one walk in completion of July 24 suspended game

On July 24, right-hander Trevor May threw three hitless innings for Triple-A Rochester at Durham. The game was then suspended in the middle of the fourth inning due to rain.
More than two weeks passed. May, the Twins' No. 8 prospect, was called up to make his Major League debut Saturday. Then, on Monday, the game resumed more than 600 miles north in Rochester as Game 1 of a doubleheader.
With May no longer a member of the Red Wings, left-hander Logan Darnell replaced him on the mound. And Darnell picked up right where May left off. He threw six hitless innings to complete the no-hitter, as Rochester defeated Durham, 3-0.
Darnell retired the first 16 batters he faced Monday before issuing a one-out walk in the ninth. But he induced a double play to erase the Bulls' lone baserunner of the day and end the game.
May struck out three and walked two. Darnell struck out five and threw 68 pitches. Together they combined for the 22nd no-hitter in Rochester history.
The Red Wings' offense was led by third baseman Doug Bernier, who went 2-for-5 with two doubles and two runs. Second baseman James Beresford added three hits and a run.
