It may be the end of the season, but some history was made on Sunday as three pitchers for short-season Single-A Mahoning Valley combined for the second no-hitter in franchise history. Luis Gomez, Carlos Melo and Kerry Doane pitched their way into the history books with nine hitless-scoreless innings and racked up 12 strikeouts in the process. The IBI's Arthur Kinney shares his thoughts on that game and all the other performances in the system from Sunday.

Triple-A Columbus reached the All Star break on Sunday, just like the parent club in Cleveland. As Columbus rests up over the break and the rest of the affiliates continue to play on, there will continue to be some amazing stories in the minors this season. One player who has not necessarily amazed but who has made some big strides this season is Tyler Naquin, and there are others!
