Calif. pitcher throws no-hitter at LLWS

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) — Little League rules impose a limit of 85 pitches, a number that can make it tough to throw a no-hitter. Grant Holman of Chula Vista, Calif., didn’t have any problems Friday.

Holman struck out 13 and issued just one walk to become the first player to toss a no-hitter in the Little League World Series since the rule was put in place in 2007, leading Chula Vista into the second round with a 3-0 victory over Grosse Pointe, Mich.

With his seven innings of work, Holman also became the first pitcher since 1979 to throw an extra-inning no-hitter in the LLWS.

Holman walked the leadoff batter in the seventh to lose his bid for a perfect game.

Standing 6-foot-4 and weighing 166 pounds, the 13-year-old Holman outdueled Grosse Pointe’s Chad Lorkowski — another stout young pitcher at 6-3 and 219 pounds.  The 12-year-old Lorkowski struck out 12 in six innings but exhausted his 85-pitch allotment. He walked two batters and hit another.
