Parks Part of Record-Setting No-Hitter

Adam Parks Spokane 2014 headshotAdam Parks is well known to Valley League fans, mostly because of the perfect game he threw for Charles Town in 2013. This page named him the #6 starter in the league after the season.

Well, last night, Adam was a part of more history. He pitched the 9th and 10th innings of a no-hitter- the first extra-inning no-hitter in the Northwest League’s history! Adam’s team, Spokane, scored 3 runs in the top of the 11th inning, which made him the official winner of the game.

A 33rd round draft pick of the Texas Rangers this June, Adam’s been pitching in relief all season, and quite well too. Including last night, he’s 2-1, 1.96, with 15 hits, 2 walks, and 22 strikeouts in 18 1/3 innings pitched.

In an odd twist, the opposing team, the Everett AquaSox (these minor league names are amazing), started a former Valley Leaguer,Ryan Yarbrough 2014 Everett Ryan Yarbrough (Luray 2012). Ryan did his best to preserve things, as he threw a perfect 3 innings, with 3 strikeouts, before giving way to the bullpen. Ryan has even better numbers than Parks: he’s 0-1, 1.61, with 16 hits, 3 walks, and 39 strikeouts in 28 innings pitched.

What a night for the VBL!
