Carlos Villanueva and others combine for no-no

Wow--check out this box score. Carlos Villanueva threw six no-hit innings, Mike Meyers followed with two more, then Alec Zumwalt shut the door with a no-hit save.

The victims were the Memphis Redbirds, the Cardinals Triple-A squad, featuring--among others--leadoff hitter Junior Spivey, right fielder Jason Conti, and left fielder Timo Perez. Chad Moeller caught the no-hitter and went 1 for 2, maintaining his .500 batting average in the Minors.

I wonder if Zumwalt would like a job as a Major League closer.
