From Press Release:

The Richmond Flying Squirrels were held without a hit through 9.1 innings by the Harrisburg Senators, but Jalen Miller singled in the bottom of the 10th inning for a 1-0, walk-off win on Wednesday night at The Diamond.

Johneshwy Fargas started the bottom of the 10th inning as the placed runner at second base representing the potential winning run. With one out, Miller deposited the first pitch he saw from right-hander Bryan Bonnell (Loss, 1-1) into shallow left-center field to bring in Fargas.

It was the first hit of the night for the Flying Squirrels, who were held without a hit by Harrisburg (39-25) left-hander Ben Braymer and Bonnell through the first nine innings. It was the first time in Flying Squirrels franchise history that Richmond was held without a hit through nine innings.

Braymer tossed eight no-hit innings, allowing one baserunner on a walk to Zach Houchins in the second inning. He retired the last 20 batters he faced.

Left-hander Garrett Williams threw five scoreless innings, allowing one hit, striking out six, walking four and stranding six runners on base. Williams has thrown 11.2 consecutive scoreless innings dating back to June 1.

Relievers Tyler Cyr and Melvin Adon combined for five scoreless innings of one-hit baseball to complete the shutout. It was the fifth shutout of the season for Richmond
