Tim Hayes:

“It felt good,” Holmberg said. “Me and [Bristol pitching coach Curt Hasler] worked in the bullpen throughout the week on what we needed to do to get better. I just took that to good use and used it tonight.”In the opener, Holmberg (1-2, 4.63 ERA) carried a no-hitter into the fifth inning and finished with five strikeouts to earn his first professional victory. The Florida native commanded both sides of the plateand had all of his pitches working. Hasler has been pleased with the progress of his 18-year-old protégé. “He might be the youngest guy in the league,” Hasler said. “He’s mature, and he’s willing to learn. He’s a no-nonsense kind of guy and very aggressive in his approach. There’s no substitute for that aggressiveness.”

here’s Holmberg’s line from the boxscore:

Player IP H R ER BB SO HR ERA
Holmberg, D (W, 1-2) 5.0 1 0 0 1 5 0 4.63
Rodriguez, S (S, 4) 2.0 2 0 0 0 3 0 1.33
