It's a Bingo no-no!

While Virginia came within five outs of a no-hitter in the College World Series Tuesday night, the Class AA Binghamton Rumble Ponies finished the job against the Reading Fightin’ Phils – with a New Orleans product getting the final nine outs.
Former Jesuit and Delgado Community College left-hander Andrew Mitchell combined with Josh Walker on the no-no in a 2-0 Binghamton victory Tuesday night in Reading.
Walker worked the first six innings, walking one and striking out four, before Mitchell took over in the seventh and worked three perfect innings, striking out one, to pick up his first save of the season.
Mitchell, a 2013 graduate of Jesuit, redshirted at LSU in 2014 before transferring to Delgado, where he went 7-2 in 13 appearances in one season. Mitchell signed with Auburn, where he pitched three seasons. His best year on the Plains was as a fifth-year senior in 2018, when he posted a 4.29 ERA in 50 1/3 innings.
Mitchell was a 14th round selection of the New York Mets in the June 2018 amateur draft. In 64 career minor-league appearances, Mitchell has a 2.00 ERA, an 8-4 record and six saves. The 2021 campaign is his first at the Class AA level, and Mitchell is 3-1 with a 2.42 ERA and 24 strikeouts in 22 1/3 innings.
