Mitchell throws a no-hitter!
Damion Mitchell would start vs. Portland. What he didn't know is that his name would be etched into Doubleday History by being one of the very few people to throw 2 no-hitters in their career. His first was in season 6.. The other fun fact here is that he almost threw a perfect game! He gave up only 1 walk while striking out 5 in the 9 inning 4-0 victory. Mitchell hasn't been what you'd consider an MVP type pitcher but he certainly has had some good moments. Honolulu is 37-24 this season, 1st place in the NL West. Mitchell can say he's contributing now. Let's see how the rest of the season goes, maybe he can celebrate a division title on top of this huge accomplishment.
