Rays prospect throws no-hitter

You know the Rays are already stacked with starting pitching -- the rotation of James Shields, David Price, Jeremy Hellickson, Wade Davis and Jeff Niemann has plenty of talent -- and the Rays' minor-league system is still deep in pitching talent.

The team's top pitching prospect, left-hander Matt Moore, threw a no-hitter on Thursday night for Double-A Montgomery against Mobile. Moore, the game's top left-handed pitching prospect, struck out 11 and walked just two on Thursday, throwing 106 pitches.

It's his second career no-hitter, throwing a seven-inning no-hitter in 2009.

On the season, he's 4-3 with a 2.43 ERA. In 14 starts, he's struck out 103 batters in 77 2/3 innings, while walking just 21. Moore will celebrate his 22nd birthday on Saturday.

Moore led the minors in strikeouts in each of the last two seasons and trails only Edwar Cabrera of the Rockies' low Class-A Asheville team this season. Cabrera has 110 in 86 innings.
