Twins' Anthony Swarzak Has No-Hitter Through Six Innings Against Angels

So far at Target Field, there is quite a pitching duel between the Twins and Angels. Jered Weaver has been his usual self, pitching five scoreless innings so far, allowing just one hit and one walk, while striking out four. However, the story of the game so far is Anthony Swarzak, who has a no-hitter through six innings for Minnesota.

Swarzak, who came into tonight's start with a 3-9 record and a 6.41 ERA in 66 major league innings, has allowed no hits and two walks in his six innings of work, throwing 81 pitches. He has four strikeouts and has kept the Angels mostly on the ground, with seven groundouts, three flyouts, and four shallow pop outs so far.

The last time the Angels were no-hit was also in Minnesota, when young Eric Milton shut down the Halos on September 11, 1999 at the Metrodome. Due up for the Angels in the top of the seventh are Bobby Abreu, Torii Hunter, and Alberto Callaspo.
