Give him a hand

Brad Hand carried a no-hitter into the eighth inning last night before allowing a one-out solo home run to Tim Federowicz. It was the longest outing for Hand in nearly two years, he matched a season high with 10 strikeouts, and was the first Zephyr to take a no-hitter beyond the seventh inning since Phil Humber came within two outs of a no-no against Iowa on August 22, 2007.

After a performance like that, what to do for an encore? Wade LeBlanc has been on quite a roll himself, posting a 1.44 ERA over his last three starts, and is coming off a career-best nine-inning effort against Omaha, though it ended with a no-decision.
