Hello and happy Friday. I hope you all have as great of a day as I am going to have.

Something very cool happened on Thursday in the San Francisco Giants farm system. The Richmond Flying Squirrels — the team’s AA affiliate — threw a no-hitter, marking the first time in franchise history that a nine-inning no-hitter had been thrown.

Matt Frisbee (the No. 39 Giants prospect in our Community Prospect List) was the star, throwing 6 perfect innings while striking out 6. Joey Marciano then took over and threw 1.2 no-hit innings, but allowed the only baserunner of the day on a walk. Matt Seelinger recorded the final out of the eighth inning on a strikeout, and then Patrick Ruotolo closed the door with a perfect ninth.

Pretty darn cool.
