Yankees throw combined no hitter

The New York Yankees pitching staff gave the fans an evening that they'llnever forget by tossing a combined no-hitter! The tension started to buildaround the 6th inning. By the 9th inning the crowd was electrified. NewYork managed 7 in their victory.
Brandon Duckworth(5-3) went 7 innings allowing no runs for the victory. Theloss was charged to Doug Davis(10-12). Despite losing, he struckout 10 NewYork batters in 7 innings.
'You probably have a better chance of winning the lottery than thishappening,' said Duckworth who got credit for the win, 'I don't expect it tosink in for awhile.' he said. 'You know, it's hard to say who was better, thestarter or the bullpen!'
