Rehabbing Holland starts combined no-no
KANSAS CITY -- Greg Holland must be ready to go.

Holland, in a one-inning start for Double-A Northwest Arkansas, struck out all three Springfield batters he faced on Thursday night and set the tone for what became a combined no-hitter by four Naturals pitchers.

On a rehab assignment from Kansas City, Holland left after his perfect first inning in which he threw 14 pitches, including 11 strikes. This was his second successful outing to test the rib injury that put the right-handed reliever on the Royals' disabled list. He remains on schedule to rejoin the club shortly.

Chris Dwyer took over and pitched 6 2/3 innings, allowing two walks and a hit batsman. Brendan Lafferty got the last out of the eighth and Kendal Volz worked the ninth inning to complete the no-hitter.

It was the first no-hitter at Arvest Ballpark at Springdale, Ark., and the second in Naturals franchise history. In addition, center fielder Wil Myers singled in the first run of the Naturals' 2-0 win over the Cardinals, extending his hitting streak to 16 games.
