JUPITER, Fla. - The Jupiter Hammerheads tossed a combined no-hitter in their 5-0 win Monday night against the Clearwater Threshers at Bright House Field.
Angel Sanchez - who was recently acquired from the Los Angeles Dodgers in the Ricky Nolasco trade - started and pitched six shutout innings for Jupiter, walking two and striking out three. He now owns a sparkling 1.69 ERA in three starts with Jupiter.
Colby Suggs - a 2013 draftee who was added to the roster just last week - pitched two perfect innings in relief. The 21-year-old was the Marlins' second-round pick in June.
James Nygren finished the combined no-no for Jupiter, pitching a 1-2-3 ninth inning. Nygren, a 33rd-rounder in 2011 out of Oregon State, hasn't allowed a run since May 23 - a streak that includes 21.1 innings and 14 relief appearances.
Isaac Galloway went 4-for-5 with a double and two RBI for Jupiter.
This is the second combined no-hitter in Jupiter's 16-year history, dating back to the team's inception in 1998. Andrew Miller, Pete Andrelczyk and Corey Madden combined on the team's first no-hitter against the Palm Beach Cardinals on May 6, 2010.
The Hammerheads have now won seven games in a row and are 16-14 in the second half of the season (52-46 overall). Jupiter's pitching has been their strength all season, as their team ERA of 3.00 leads the Florida State League.
