HARRISBURG - Binghamton Mets starter Mark Cohoon took a no-hitter into the seventh inning and struck out a season-high ten Harrisburg Senators en route to his fifth career complete game shutout in a 5-0 win Friday night at Metro Bank Park.
Cohoon showed no signs of rust after both teams waited through a 49 minute rain delay to start the game. The southpaw cruised to open the contest, retiring the first 11 he faced before issuing a two-out walk in the fourth.
Cohoon's no-hit bid came to an end with one out in the seventh when Justin Bloxom sent a high pop up to shallow center. Wilfredo Tovar retreated from short and Raul Reyes raced in from center, but the ball dropped to the grass for a double.
Cohoon showed no signs of being phased and retired the next two hitters to preserve the shutout.
