Hartford Yard Goats pitcher German Marquez took a no-hitter into the eighth inning in the team’s 3-2 win over the Harrisburg Senators.
Marquez, who was recently ranked the No. 7 prospect in the Rockies system my MLB.com, pitched 8 innings and allowed two runs on three hits with three walks while striking out eight in the game. He threw 100 pitches, 62 for strikes.
The Rockies obtained Marquez along with big league reliever Jake McGee in an offseason trade from Tampa Bay that saw Corey Dickerson and minor leaguer Kevin Padlo head to Tampa.
