Today marks 10 years when the right wing of the Navegantes del Magallanes, Anthony Lerew threw no hit no run against the Leones del Caracas, in a match played on Sunday, November 21, 2010 at the José Bernardo Pérez stadium in Valencia, which the team won. Carabobeño 6-0 before more than 15 thousand people.
It was the sixteenth no hit no run in the history of the Venezuelan Professional Baseball League (LVBP), the twelfth that a single pitcher has tipped and the third of the Navegantes. In addition, the first one that Magellan prescribes to his eternal rival. As if that were not enough, it is the last game of this characteristic in the history of the LVBP.
The American right-hander, who faced 28 batters and retired 18 of the last 19 sluggers, completed the feat when, after walking Eduardo Pérez, he dominated ambidextrous Guayanes (born in Guayana) Marwin González by decapitating a line that carried all the intentions of going to the garden central. Lerew caught the ball and ran to first base to complete the double play to the delirium of the fans, manager Gregorio Machado and teammates.
The Pennsylvania native, who had Falconian Robinson Chirinos as a receiver, struck out four and gave up the same number of walks. He made 106 pitches, of which 61 were strikes to complete the jewel.
