With a two-out RBI single in the ninth inning off reliever Colter Bean, Danny Sandoval spoils the Braves’ bid for a spring training combined no-hitter on March 7, 2008.
Bean attended Vestavia Hills High School in Birmingham before attending Auburn University. Bean played in the College World Series and was named All-SEC second team in 2000. Bean still holds the Auburn team record with 108 games pitched and 106 games relieved in his NCAA career.
Bean spent most of his career in the Minors. After being released by the Braves, signed with Olmecas de Tabasco. On May 8, he signed a minor league deal with the Tampa Bay Rays and became a free agent at the end of the season.
Atlanta used seven hurlers, beating the Indians at Winter Haven 4-1.
