Nashville, TN – The Pacific Coast League announced today that Nashville Sounds’ pitcher Chris Smith has been named PCL Pitcher of the Week for his performance from June 5th-11th.
Smith, 36, pitched six no-hit innings in the Sounds four-pitcher no-hitter against the Omaha Storm Chasers on June 7th. The right-hander issued two walks and struck out four in Nashville’s 4-0 win.
The no-hitter was the seventh in the 40-year history of Nashville Sounds Baseball, and first since Manny Parra tossed a perfect game against Round Rock Express on June 25th, 2007.
Papillion, NB – The Nashville Sounds made history Wednesday night by no-hitting the Omaha Storm Chasers. A combined effort from Chris Smith, Sean Doolittle, Tucker Healy, and Simon Castro got the job done for the Sounds in their 4-0 victory. It was the seventh no-hitter thrown in club history and first since Manny Parra’s perfect game in 2007.
Smith, the Sounds starter, cruised through the first six innings, allowing just two base runners via base on balls. He then handed the ball off to Doolittle who is with the club on a Major League rehab assignment. Doolittle needed just 12 pitches to retire the three Storm Chasers he faced including two punch outs.
Healy came on in the eighth inning and sat the three Omaha hitters he saw down in order on a mere nine pitches.

The Virgin Islands native struck out a career-high 12 in the dominating effort. With Bernier at third, he punched out Drew Robinson for the final out of the game.
