LAKEWOOD, N.J. - Keith Bucktrot pitched a no-hitter in the second game in the history of the Lakewood BlueClaws' franchise, beating the Hickory Crawdads, 11-1, in the South Atlantic League last night.
Earlier, the Phillies' newest minor-league affiliate won the completion of a suspended game, 3-2.
Bucktrot needed only 76 pitches to win the game, striking out nine without giving up a walk. The 6-foot-2 lefthander was the Phillies' third-round draft choice in June.
Bucktrot's battery mate, Carlos Ruiz, drove in four runs with a two-run single and a two-run triple.
