The cast was different, the performance the same.
Jose Veras and Daniel McCutchen combined on Tampa's second no-hitter in four days Sunday as the Yankees blanked the Lakeland Flying Tigers, 4-0, in the opener of their doubleheader.
After Veras struck out four in two perfect innings in his debut for Tampa (21-9), McCutchen (11-2) fanned two and walked five. He benefited from three double plays and tied Clearwater's Andrew Carpenter for the Florida State League lead in wins.
McCutchen has had his way with the Flying Tigers this season, having pitched 11 scoreless innings over two outings. The 24-year-old right-hander lowered his ERA to 2.50, which ranks fourth in the league. [milb]
