The 22-year-old right-hander ran into trouble in the third inning, when his own throwing error, followed by a walk and a wild pitch, put runners on second and third with no outs ahead of Delmarva shortstop Mason McCoy, who put his club on the board with a run-scoring ground out. Junk would hit the next batter, putting runners on the corners with one out, but bounced back to record a pair of strikeouts and close the frame.

Austin DeCarr, 23, took over in the sixth and proceeded to deliver three hitless frames. The right-hander issued two walks, struck out three and generated four ground-ball outs while matching his longest relief outing of the season.

Daniel Alvarez needed just 13 pitches to complete a flawless ninth inning and secure Charleston's combined no-hitter.
