Touch 'Em All Time

Danny Wild had this on LHP Ryan Carpenter's no-hit professional debut:
Carpenter threw five hitless innings Wednesday, throwing 61 pitches and striking out three for Class A Short-Season Hudson Valley in a 3-1 loss to Auburn.
Carpenter retired the first four batters he faced before Caleb Ramsey reached on second baseman Raymond Church's fielding error. Carpenter got out of the inning and erased a leadoff walk in the third when he picked Connor Rowe off first. He set down the final eight batters he faced before reaching his pitch count after five.

"I mainly relied on my fastball and tried to get ahead of hitters later in the at-bats with my change-up and breaking pitches," he said. "I used the change to try and get the hitters off balance a little, and that seemed to work well for me."

Moves: RHRP Rob Delaney recalled to Tampa; RHRP Jay Buente optioned to Durham; OF Brandon Guyer placed on Durham DL; C/OF Stephen Vogt promoted to Durham from Montgomery; C Craig Albernaz assigned to Montgomery from Durham; Hudson Valley IF Diogenes Luis released; 2B Jonathan Koscso promoted to Hudson Valley from Princeton; RHSP Albert Suarez assigned to GCL on rehab assignment from Charlotte; signed 3rd rounder Johnny Eierman for $550,000; signed 8th rounder John Alexander.

  2. Anyone know how hard Carpenter was throwing? This guy was an elite prospect who fell this year because of a dip in velocity? Now obviously, his stuff is good enough for Low A but I want to believe this guy is the real deal. I loved the pick the first time we took him also.

  3. Raymond Church made an error, but was the also the only guy to drive in a run for the Renegades.
