Pries throws a no-hitter in the Cape Cod League

Mooneyham in Durham for the USA baseball tryouts

Stanford right-hander Jordan Pries threw a no-hitter for Yarmouth-Dennis last Wednesday while pitching in the prestigious Cape Cod League.

The Cardinal junior had a perfect game through the first six innings and finished with four strikeouts, three walks and a summer ERA of 1.23.

Pries (2-0) needed 107 pitches, 66 for strikes, to complete the nine-inning contest in just over two hours. He faced two hitters over the minimum.

After Yarmouth-Dennis had a 2-0 lead when Pries walked the first two batters of the seventh, before getting a ground out, strikeout and pop up to end the threat.

After a perfect eighth, Pries walked the leadoff batter in the ninth, only to start a 1-6-3 double play ball. The game ended on a flu out.

Stanford left-hander Brett Mooneyham, currently trying out with Team USA, has 19 strikeouts over 17 innings for the Red Sox. He's in Durham for the USA trials.
