             === Orioles minor leaguer Tillman tosses no-hitter ===
 
 Lawrenceville,  GA (Sports  Network)  - Orioles  minor  leaguer Chris  Tillman
 tossed  a no-hitter for Norfolk Wednesday night in a 6-0 Triple-A win over the
 Gwinnett Braves.
 
 Tillman  walked one  batter and  had six  strikeouts, throwing  63 of  his 105
 pitches for strikes.
 
 It's the first no-hitter in the minors this season.
 
 The  22-year-old right-hander,  who was drafted by Seattle in the second round
 in  2006, retired the first 12 batters he faced before Brent Clevlen walked in
 the  fifth.  Mitch Jones then  grounded into a  double play. Joe Thurston then
 reached first on a fielding error by first baseman Michael Aubrey, but Tillman
 fanned Wes Timmons.
 
 Tillman  was on  the rest of the  night and he completed Norfolk's first nine-
 inning  no-hitter since  1992 when Matt Young grounded out to shortstop Robert
 Andino to end the game.
 
 In  2009, Tillman made 12 starts for the Baltimore Orioles and went 2-5 with a
 5.40 ERA. He is 2-3 with a 4.05 ERA for Norfolk this season.
