“Pudge’s” Son Flirts with No-Hitter

Dereck-RodriguezThe stars nearly aligned for Dereck Rodriguez — son of the former 14-time All-Star catcher, Ivan “Pudge” Rodriguez — on Monday.

With his dad in the crowd, the Rookie League Elizabethton hurler didn’t allow a hit until he gave up a single to Bristol’s Carlos Munoz with one out in the seventh. He worked around the base hit and finished with seven strikeouts vs. just one walk over seven shutout innings as the E-Twins blanked the Pirates, 6-0.
