On June 4 2012 — Rookie Jarrod Parker keeps the powerful Rangers line-up hitless for 7 innings on his way to a 12 – 1 win by the Athletics. Michael Young ends Parker’s bid for a no-hitter with a leadoff single in the 8th; Parker only needs two more pitches to get out of the inning, on a pop-up and a double play grounder, then leaves the game. For Texas, OF Craig Gentry is pressed into mound service in the 8th, to give his team’s tired bullpen a breather.
