Lake County No Hitter (7/3/07)

Hector Rondon, 19 years old, and Neil Wagner combined to throw a no hitter tonight against Delmarva. Rondon, who has been Mr Inconsistent this year, pitched 6 innings and struck out 5 while walking 2. Wagner, a 23 year old graduate of the North Dakota St University baseball factory, pitched the remaining 3 innings, striking out 5 with no walks.

Considering Rondon is listed at 6'3" and 165, I shouldn't be too hard on him about being inconsistent. I surprised he has enough strength to actually pitch for a few innings. A few months of big Macs, and he should be built like Roger Clemens.

Wagner has been a guy that I followed with interest since I saw his final numbers last season. When I saw those numbers, I remember the routes that K-Rod and Bobby Jenks took the bigs and I had to wonder: Why can't Cleveland get lucky and have someone succeed in that manner??

I'm surprised Wagner is still at Lake County at this point since he has been generally successful.

The difference with Wagner is he is all heat. His secondary stuff is very average, whereas for the likes of K-Rod it is devasating.
