AA pitcher throws perfect game

The Major League Mets franchise which does have a no-hitter or a perfect game in it's 44 year history had it's second no-hitter in the minors in as many years. Last year Gaby Hernandez, now with the Marlins, threw a perfect game in A and this year it was Miguel Pinango who did the job. Although, it was only a seven inning second game of a double-header Pinango did not allow a hit or a baserunner through all seven innings, and finished with his fifth win in twelve decisions and a 3.83 Binghamton era.

Pinango, signed as an undrafted free agent by the New York Mets in 1999, was originally projected to be a quality starter or reliever although he has seemingly fallen out of prospect status in the Mets system, since he has not been overly impressive, despite a few terrific outings. The 23 year old won 13 games in Capital City in 2003.
