Indians prospect Shao-Ching Chiang throws no-hitter in Lynchburg

The first Hillcats CG no-hitter since 1992.

MLB: Arizona Diamondbacks at Atlanta Braves Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

Shao-Ching Chiang is rarely a name that anyone but hardcore prospect followers of the Cleveland Indians know, but he just did something kind of incredible: He threw a complete-game no-hitter.

The 23-year-old struck out seven batters and walked one on his way to the no-no. Chiang, who gained some notoriety pitching for Taiwan in the World Baseball Classic, has only thrown two shutouts with more seven innings pitched twice this season.

It took Chang 106 pitches to complete the no-hitter, meaning he failed to achieve a Maddux, but I guess we’ll allow it.
