Rookie no-hits reeling O's

The Baltimore Sun

BOSTON -- Ten days after becoming the first team in the modern era to give up 30 runs in a game, the Orioles suffered another dose of baseball indignity last night, getting no-hit by Boston Red Sox rookie pitcher Clay Buchholz, who was making just his second major league start.

On a warm night at Fenway Park, Buchholz, a 23-year-old right-hander who is considered Boston's top pitching prospect, became just the third pitcher since 1900 to throw a no-hitter in either his first or second major league start.
