MT Drops 2-0 Decision to MemphisApril 3, 2002 · MT Media Relations
The Tigers got an outstanding pitching performance from starter Daniel de Armas, who carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning. De Armas hurled 7-1/3 innings until yielding to the bullpen. Josh Cartwright and Josh Payne finished the game without allowing a hit or a run.
The Tigers got all they needed offensively in the top of the first inning. Paul Cookman led off with a solid single up the middle and Paul Reuer followed by getting hit by a Swing breaking ball. The freshman rallied to get the next two hitters, but a single from designated hitter Barrett Smith plated Cookman and put runners at first and second. However, Swing got a strikeout to end the inning and quell the threat.
The Tigers added an insurance run in the top of the sixth on a homer from Brent Dlugach.
De Armas earned the win to improve to 1-1 on the year while Swing fell to 0-2.
