Memphis rookie Noah Syndergaard threw the first no-hitter of the 2016 season as the Melee completed a 7-0 win over Dublin at Wrigley Field.
Syndergaard, acquired from Tijuana as part of a package that sent David Price to the Tequila Swiggers, faced one batter more than the minimum in notching the 18th known no-hitter in PGBL history.
The 22-year-old righty struck out six in the 104-pitch gem. He issued a two-out walk to Kevin Kiermaier in the fourth inning, then got Andrelton Simmons to ground into a double play after Cory Spangenberg reached on a Ketel Marte error leading off the sixth.
Syndergaard retired the first 11 and final 11 hitters he faced, closing out the masterpiece by getting Christian Yelich to ground out to Marte.
Marte got the Memphis offense started with a two-run homer off Rick Porcello in the third. Adam Jones added a solo shot in the sixth and Devon Travis capped the scoring with a three-run blast off Julio Teheran in the ninth.
Box score: Syndergaard no-hitter.
List: PGBL no-hitters.
