Melville Tosses a No Hitter for the Lions

Tim Melville threw a no hitter for the Uni Lions in a 13-0 win over the expansion team Wei Chuan Dragons. He threw 142 pitches, striking 10 and walking five. The fact that the score was 13-0 with all the runs scored in the first five innings took the pressure off the manager to keep him in the game.

It was the 11th no hitter in the CPBL. You can watch some of Melville’s dance moves to celebrate his no hitter at CPBLstats.com website, as well as three stellar defensive plays that kept the no hitter alive.

Of the 11 no hitters eight have been thrown by foreign pitchers, including the last five. The last no hitter thrown in the CPBL was on October 7, 2018 by Ryan Verdugo.
