Forkin Masterful as Pirates No-Hit the Reds
RHP Troy Forkin was masterful on the mound for Pirates as he effectively changed speeds and kept Reds hitters off-balance. He struck out 13 and walked just two over 5 2/3 no-hit innings. After reaching his pitch limit, Forkin departed and was relieved by RHP Sam Bogart who struck out the last batter to complete the no-hitter. Forkin also went 2-2 with a walk at the plate. Bogart and C Nick Gerard each had a hit and a run scored. 2B Aliza Speno also had a hit as the Pirates squeaked by the Reds. The Reds' RHP Jackson Emery matched Forkin for most of the game and struck out 10 over five innings pitched. He also benefited from solid defense behind him from SS Nolan Chisholm and 3B Sam Tainter.
