Twins Triple-A team completes the oddest no-hitter you’ll see this season

Shore ‘nuff!

The Rochester Red Wings, the Triple-A affiliate of the Minnesota Twins, completed a no-hitter Monday against the Durham Bulls that was started in a different month, in a different state, by a pitcher who is now in the big leagues.

The no-hitter started on July 24 in Durham, where weather caused the game to be suspended until Monday in Rochester… Trevor May, who made his MLB debut for the Twins on Saturday night, started the game in July for Rochester, throwing three no-hit innings. Logan Darnell resumed the game for the Red Wings, throwing six more no-hit innings.

We’ve heard of combined no-hitters before, but cross-state combined no-hitters are a different matter altogether. Since the Red Wings weren’t traveling back to the Durham, the two teams had to finish the game in Rochester, thus making things even more odd. The Red Wings were “visitors” in their own stadium.

Worth noting that May is a right-hander and Darnell a lefty, and the Bulls' lineup had 4 lefties in it. Which reminds one of this one-hitter in which peak Randy Johnson pitched 7 innings in "relief" of Curt Schilling in a suspended game, against a lineup with 4 lefties in it.

Why suspend a game after only 3 innings? I thought games like that were called and started over.

Do the minor leagues do this to protect arms in case of the game being picked up the next day?

Rule 4.12(a)(7) allows minor leagues to declare a game suspended before it becomes a regulation game.

The day after Trevor May started the game the Twins recalled Logan Darnell to the big leagues. The day before the second half of the game the Twins recalled Trevor May to the big leagues.

Were there any big roster changes for Durham in the meantime?

(Note: I was at the game yesterday.)

The biggest changes for the Bulls were that they no longer had Jayson Nix and they did, in theory, have Wil Myers, who is with them on rehab assignment (but, of course, they probably were told specifically not to play him in the first game of the double-header).

I was at that game. Well, the resumed portion of it. Johnson set a record for the most strikeouts in a relief appearance. His stuff was nasty. The Padres were flailing and falling all over the place.

I didn't realize there was another Rochester native on BBTF. Or maybe I did once and forgot about it.
