Starling Peralta took a no-hitter into the top of the sixth, eventually leaving after 523 scoreless innings of 1-hit ball as the Kane County Cougars blanked the Burlington Bees 7-0 in front of 10,238 at Fifth Third Bank Ballpark in Geneva on Thursday.

Peralta (2-0) has not allowed a run in 1323 innings since joining the Cougars (47-64, 17-28). The first hit off Peralta, who walked five, came when Pedro Toribio led off the sixth with a single for the Bees (44-67, 18-28). Relievers Justin Amlung and Nathan Dorris preserved the shutout.
