Gamboa was removed from the game with 1 out in the 8th inning.

He struck out the first batter of the inning before giving up an infield single to Justin Howard, which broke up his no-hitter.

He had little margin for error, as Bowie scored the only run of the game in the bottom of the 6th inning. Gamboa left the game with a 1-0 lead.

Here's a link of milb.com. He said he threw the knuckler about 60% of the time. I know this is the first year he's throwing it, but I thought Knuckleballers were supposed to throw it like 90% of the time.

I'm pretty sure he didnt start throwing it until after season began, so hes transitioning it in. I think the plan is for him to throw it more and more as the season goes on.

With Eddie's turn Friday 6-28 rained out and with Chen likely to make a rehab start tonight, it looks like Eddie's next start would probably be during tomorrow's double-header vs. Harrisburg. It's possible that Harper could do another rehab game Sunday so maybe Eddie can strike him out three or four times. :mwahaha:

Wow Eddie es en fuego!

He must have really developed that knuckler.

Last inning, he made one of the Senators hitters fall down in a futile strike three flail-swing. :)

Congrats to Eddie Gamboa on tossing a no-no! :clap3::clap3::clap3:
