On April 11, 2011 — The Lake County Captains of the Midwest League throw the first no-hitter in organized baseball this year with a 3 – 1 victory over the Dayton Dragons in Eastlake, OH. Trey Haley, Francisco Jimenez and Clayton Ehlert combine on the feat. Dayton scores its run off Haley on two walks, a stolen base and two wild pitches in the 3rd; Haley leaves the game at the end of the inning, having reached his pitch count limit, and Jimenez throws the next four frames to pick up the win. Ehlert shuts down Dayton in order over the last two innings for the save.
