According to our friends over at RaysProspects.com, this is the first minor league no-hitter for the Rays since Wade Davis tossed a pair of no-hitters. However, both of those were of the 7-inning variety (minor league double-headers are only 7 innings for each game). The last 9-inning no-hitter in the Rays famr system was by Gerardo Garcia in 2002.
Congrats to Matt Moore, but we do have to wonder about the pitch count. 106 pitches? That is a lot for a young arm. Somewhere Andrew Friedman is prepping his phone call to the double-A manager that might go something like this: “OK, but don’t do that again!”
