Cookie Ramirez No-HIts St. Louis Kamikaze
St. Louis, MO - Cookie Ramirez threw his first career nohitter in a 3-0 win over the Kamikazes. Ramirez (3-0) allowed 4 runners on base, issuing two walks and hitting two batters. In the 4th inning, Saint Louis started the inning with two runners on base and no outs, but Ramirez pitched himself out of the jam. Ramirez' performance silenced critics who have noted that Ramirez' strikeout ratio has dropped significantly through his first four starts of the season, when compared to previous seasons. Coming of off a rocky start in Colorado, where Ramirez allowed 6ER and 12 hits in 7 innings, the ace of the Bison pitching staff threw a complete game in 104 pitches.
