Snodgress tosses 8 1/3 no-hit innings for Birmingham

Snodgress tosses 8 1/3 no-hit innings for Birmingham


White Sox prospect Scott Snodgress came within two outs of a no-hitter for Double-A Birmingham on Monday night.

In a 7-0 win over Chattanooga, Snodgress allowed a one-out single in the ninth to the Lookouts' Matt Wallach on an 0-1 count. 

Removed from the game after the hit, the No. 6 White Sox prospect, according to MLB.com, improved to 10-7 on the season with a 4.09 ERA. He also struck out five and walked three.

"It was an incredible feeling," Snodgress said to MiLB.com. "I wish that I could have finished it, but I guess that's how it goes."

He'd previously thrown six innings of a combined no-hitter for Rookie-level Casper on Aug. 18, 2011, three months after he was drafted out of Stanford University in the fifth round.

In three starts this month, the 23-year-old lefty has allowed one run over 21 1/3 innings.
