Ohio State's Seth Lonsway won for the first time with the Champion City Kings on Monday night.

The left-handed pitcher from Celina held Chillicothe hitless over six innings while racking up nine strikeouts and four walks in a 10-0 victory. Jonathan Jahn, Lonsway's teammate at Ohio State, threw the final three innings and completed the combined no-hitter. It was just the second no-no in the Prospect League this summer. [More]
