-On a warm fall day in Gettysburg, with partly cloudy skies and no wind, waiver wire pick-up Chris Young set out to prove that he belonged in a starting rotation. ​ 28 batters and 109 pitches later, he had pitched a complete game no-hitter against the New York Knights. ​ The only blemish on his day was a first inning walk to JD Martinez.+On a warm fall day in Gettysburg, with partly cloudy skies and no wind, waiver wire pick-up ​

-The feat wasn't without peril, as Young allowed 4 deep fly rolls, but as luck (rollbot) would have it, none left the yard.  Young also got a little defensive help, as Mike Aviles, who had just come into the game as a defensive replacement for Elvis Andrus in the top of the 7th, bare-handed a high chopper and fired to first to get JD Martinez. ​ Young also got a little help from mother nature, as a high fly ball off the bat of Grady Sizemore could have fallen in center field if not for the partly cloudy skies.+The feat wasn't without peril, as Young allowed 4 deep fly rolls, but as luck (rollbot) would
