KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Former Volunteer Ty'Relle Harris didn't waste any time making a strong first impression after being called up to Double-A on Sunday. Just one day later, the 6-4 righthander combined with Julio Teheran for the second no-hitter in Mississippi Braves history.
Harris, who played at Tennessee in 2008 and 2009 after spending his first two collegiate seasons at the University of the Pacific and Sacramento City College, tossed 3.1 hitless innings, striking out six and earning the save in his Southern League debut. He allowed just two baserunners and struck out the final four batters he faced, including fanning the side in the ninth to complete the no-hitter.
The save was his second of the season as he was 1-2 with a 3.71 ERA and one save in 17 relief appearances with Myrtle Beach. Harris (2010 stats) also made nine appearances out of the bullpen with Rome earlier this year, fashioning a 2.53 ERA in 10.2 innings of work. For the season, he has twirled 40.2 frames, striking out 55 and walking just 17 while holding opponents to a .215 batting average.
