The very first nine-inning no-hitter in all of minor league baseball for 2009 belongs to Brevard County RHP Evan Anundsen, who struck out ten and walked only one in a 1-0 Manatee victory over the Daytona Cubs Tuesday morning in Daytona Beach.
Anundsen, who will turn 21 years old in May, was drafted in the 4th round of the 2006 draft out of Columbine High School in Colorado. He has progressed through the system very effectively, spending a full year in Maryvale, Helena, and West Virginia, a near-perfect progression path for a young highly regarded high school draft pick. Anundsen has always used the sink on his ball to induce groundouts at an organizational-leading level, although as noted above, also K'd ten today, mixing in a slow curveball.
