Carrasco pitches gem for ‘Winders

1-run effort salvages split in Fresno; Bees win first game 7-1

Tucson nearly got no-hit in the first game, but the Sidewinders rebounded with a pitching gem of their own in the nightcap to split a doubleheader at Fresno.

Sidewinders pitcher D.J. Carrasco allowed one run on four hits in 5 1/3 innings – his best outing of the season – to lead Tucson to a 3-1 win in the second game.

In the first game, Tim Lincecum did not allow a hit over 6 1/3 innings as Fresno won 7-1. He was pulled while two outs short of a no-hitter because he had reached his pitch limit. He walked six and struck out four on 97 pitches.

Tucson’s Chris Carter went 0-3 in the first game to snap his hitting streak at 15 games.

The Sidewinders will wrap up their four-game series at Fresno at 7:05 tonight (1450-AM).

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
