The Durham Bulls tossed a tandem no-hitter this afternoon against the Pawtucket Red Sox behind starter Jake Odorizzi, who threw seven hitless, shut-out innings. The right-hander struck out three and walked four. Relievers Frank De Los Santos, Kirby Yates and Jeff Beliveau held the Sox hitless over the final two innings as the Bulls went on to win 2-1.
Odorizzi, rated among the top-50 prospects by MLB.com going into each of the past two seasons, was acquired by the Tampa Bay Rays along with Wil Myers, Patrick Leonard, and Mike Montgomery in the trade that sent James Shields, Wade Davis, and Elliot Johnson to the Kansas City Royals. The 23-year-old Odorizzi entered the afternoon with a 3.33 ERA and a 36/9 K/BB in 27 innings.
