Former BYU pitcher Scott Nielsen is producing some eye-popping results this month, laboring for the Triple-A Columbus Clippers of the International League.
Nielsen, an off-season resident of Salt Lake, threw a no-hitter early in June against Maine, the first in Columbus since the 1940's. The next game he won 6-1 and the following game he tossed a shutout. In his last six starts Nielsen has a 1.24 ERA. Overall he is 9-3 with a 2.09 ERA.
