Hickory Crawdads Toss Second No-Hitter

The Rangers' High Class-A affiliate threw its second combined no-hitter in a month on Thursday in a 4-0 win over Greenville.

For the second time this season, the Hickory Crawdads pitching staff threw a no-hitter, this time on Thursday night against the Greenville Drive.

The Crawdads won the game 4-0, which was the same score of their first no-hitter of 2022 last month.

Mason Englert started the game for Hickory. The Rangers’ fourth-round pick in 2018, threw seven innings, giving up two walks. He struck out six and shaved his ERA down to 3.59.

Theo McDowell, who had a hand in the Crawdads’ first no-hitter this season, threw the final two innings. He gave up a walk and struck out two.

Evan Carter took care of the offense for the Crawdads, as he went 4-for-5 while driving in two runs. Thomas Saggese — named the organization’s Player of the Month for July — had two hits.
