Texas Rangers Pitching Prospect Joe Wieland Throws No Hitter For Double-A Frisco

Texas Rangers pitcher Joseph Wieland threw a No Hitter on Friday against the San Antonio Missions in Texas League action. The only thing separating Wieland from a perfect game was a seventh inning walk to Andy Parrino who was then erased on a caught stealing. Wieland faced the minimum 27 batters in the game. The final out was a ground out to second by Padres prospect Dan Robertson. The 21 year old right hander put up a final line of 9IP, 0ER, 0H, 1BB, 7K’s, and picked up his 4th win since debuting with the Double-A Frisco Roughriders during last week in June. He was 6-3 with a 2.10ERA in 13 starts for the High-A Myrtle Beach Pelicans prior to the promotion. Wieland was a fourth round pick of the Rangers in the 2008 draft.
