Former Spinner Hunter Strickland Combines with Moreno for No Hitter

Congratulations are due for 2008 Spinner Hunter Strickland, who has had a whirlwind week. First, Strickland was sent along with Argenis Diaz to Pittsburgh for Adam LaRoche. Then last night, in his first start with Pirates (A) Affiliate the West Virgina Power, he combined with new teammate Diego Moreno to throw a no hitter against the Charleston River Dogs. Strickland pitched six hitless innings and was followed by Moreno, who was dominant in three innings in relief. Strickland is still trying to acclimate to his new surroundings, admitting he didn’t know what to expect upon hearing of the news he was traded. Once again, congratulations Hunter, and best of luck in Pittsburgh.
