READING -- Reading righthander Trevor May, No. 1 in The Inquirer/Daily News ranking of the Phillies Top 25 minor league prospects, improved to 4-0 with Wednesday's 1-0 win over the Richmond Flying Squirrels at First Energy Stadium.
May, pitched six shutout innings, allowing just one hit. He walked two and struck out seven. One reason he only pitched six innings was that May threw 90 pitches, 55 for strikes.
His no-hitter was broken up with one out in the fifth inning on a single by right fielder Juan Perez.
"I felt confident in all my pitches," said May, who lowered his ERA to 2.35. "Even more so than feeling good body-wise and feel-wise with my pitches, I felt relaxed and definitely confident that I could throw all my pitches for strikes."
May, who has never thrown a professional no-hitter, said he didn't think about it. He said the only thing that mattered was giving Reading the chance to win, which he certainly did for the fourth time in four outings.
