We will remember the day that the Navegantes del Magallanes pitcher Anthony Lerew threw a no hit no run against the Leones del Caracas.
On November 21, 2010, the Lions of Caracas and the Navegantes del Magallanes were measured at the José Bernardo Pérez stadium in the city of Valencia, where the foreign pitcher of the Buccaneers Anthony Lerew would make history in the LVBP.
As expected, the stadium was packed with the public and Lerew began to serve inning after inning without allowing hits.
Magallanes was in charge of scoring the runs to give the pitcher comfort and focus on his ball game.
Lerew was throwing the first act, the second and so on until he reached the fifth inning, where the manager of the ship Gregorio Machado had decided that as soon as he received the first hit he was going to take him out of the game.
Each time the feat was closer, the public was more involved in the challenge, while the buccaneers were winning with a score of 6-0.
The imported pitcher came out to pitch in the ninth inning, where he managed to get the first out of the inning, but then he walked and it was the turn of batter Marwin González, who hit a line that Lerew himself caught and in the middle of the race went to the first base to complete the double play without assistance, to unleash the euphoria throughout the park for the feat achieved.
It is the first game without a hit or a run that Magellan has played against Caracas in all its history, so the feat of pitcher Lerew is unique for the Magallanera fans.
