Frymier Tosses 10th No-No In NWL History
On a night that included four shutouts St. Cloud’s Kurtis Frymier one-upped the other stellar pitching performances by tossing the 10th no-hitter in NWL history. The third-year River Bat from Michigan State pitched the second no-no in River Bats history – in a 2-0, 7-inning win in Game 1 of a doubleheader against the La Crosse Loggers at Joe Faber Field. Frymier joined Wisconsin’s Bobby Pritchett as the only Northwoods Leaguers to throw a no-hitter this season. Frymier also joined Thomas Diamond as the only River Bats to accomplish the feat. Frymier (1-1) escaped trouble in the first inning when two Loggers reached base on errors. He allowed the first of his two walks to start the second inning, but induced a double-play ball in the next at-bat. That began a string of 14 consecutive batters retired by Frymier.
