Justin Wilson Throws Second No Hitter of the 2012 Season

For the second time this year, Justin Wilson has been part of a no-hitter for Indianapolis. Earlier this season, the left-hander was part of a three man no-hitter, joined by Jose Diaz and Doug Slaten. This time around he pitched eight no-hit innings. That was all he needed, as the game was called due to rain with Indianapolis leading 3-0 at the time.

Wilson gave up just one walk and struck out five in the outing. He was extremely efficient, throwing 86 pitches, and 57 strikes. Nancy Zinni will have a live game recap later tonight.

I must say after you reported that he was moving to the pen i was shocked to see him starting and pitching 8 innings today but okay

Im pretty happy though because you look at our staff. yes i still like our staff but their later year veterans and J-Mac who i pray figures it out. but I think Justin has the ability to start and not like he was struggling but after being told he was going to the pen then coming out and doing that when he got a start anyways. wow…. its hard to say go to the pen now. like how could you?

I thought he was moved into relief? Or did that get scratched when Locke got called up? Games like this are the reason I go batty when people call for him to be moved into the ‘pen. Kid needs to be given a chance in the bigs to start next season and prove whether or not he belongs in the rotation. If he can keep the BB’s under control, he’s got the stuff, IMO, to be a very good #2 guy.
