Tetsuya Terada tossed a no-hitter against the Gunma Diamond Pegasus for the Niigata Albirex Baseball Club (BC League) today.

Terada became the third pitcher in BC League history to record a no-hitter.  The other two: Takashi Shimizu on May 29, 2010 and Ryuji Sugiyama on September 23, 2012.

The following statement by Terada was posted by Niigata:

"I was able to pitch as I usually do through the 8th inning, but got a little nervous in the 9th.  There were some tough plays, but the position players behind me did their jobs.  I am really grateful.

As long as I continue to pitch, I do not to lose.  I will do my best to help the team win with the support of everyone.  Please continue to cheer for me."

Terada threw ninety-one pitches, faced twenty-eight batters, struck out eight, and walked one.
