Cody Curry, a 2004 graduate of Waxahachie High School, is spending his summer in Bryan, playing for the Brazos Valley Bombers of the Texas Collegiate League.
A pitcher at Cisco Junior College the past two years, Curry was a part of history earlier this week.
Curry’s teammate, Clint Helms, threw the league’s first ever complete game no-hitter in the second game of a doubleheader against Coppell.
Curry opened the doubleheader with a complete game shutout of the Copperheads, but was overshadowed by his teammate’s no-hitter.
At the time, Curry’s shutout was just the second complete game shutout of the season in the TCL.
Because of the doubleheader, the game was a seven-inning affair and Curry allowed just three hits while walking one and striking out one. He faced 22 batters in the game, only one more than the minimum of 21 for a seven-inning game.
Curry’s defense helped him out as the Bombers turned two double plays and Curry picked a runner off of first base to erase three of the Copperheads’ four base runners.
Curry will be attending McMurry University in the fall after completing his season with the Bombers.
With the doubleheader sweep of Coppell, the Bombers are in first place in the Tris Speaker Division.
