FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) — Joey Cantillo keeps getting better.
Cantillo took a no-hitter into the seventh inning, and ended up tossing eight scoreless innings as the TinCaps beat the South Bend Cubs 9-1. This effort came after Cantillo won the Midwest League Pitcher of the Week award for his win last Thursday.
Cantillo (W, 5-2) picked up the victory, finishing with a line of eight innings, two hits, no walks and nine strikeouts (with two hit batters).

The TinCaps got a couple ugly runs in the fourth, scoring on a double play and an error.
Agustin Ruiz belted an opposite field grand slam in the fifth inning, and the TinCaps added a pair of RBI doubles in the sixth from Grant Little and Blake Hunt.
So here's something you don't see often at a baseball game. Christopher Morel pops this almost straight up, Luis Almanzar calls off the catcher, then has to dive for a ridiculous catch. @TinCaps @Padres @ESPNAssignDesk #SCtop10 pic.twitter.com/wuclvfrFCJ
