No hits, no walks, one win

Powerline highlights the new rule in minor league baseball - which allowed a Florida State League team to win 1-0 without a hit or a walk.
In extra innings, the player who made the final out starts the new inning on second base.
In the Clearwater-Tampa game, neither team scored during regulation play. No Clearwater player even reached first base. 
In the first extra frame, Luke Williams was duly placed at second base. Williams reached third base on an error by Tampa shortstop Diego Castillo, then scored when Daniel Brito hit a grounder to first, and he beat the throw home. 
In the bottom of the inning Tampa failed to score despite starting out with the runner on second. 
Glad I'm not an official scorer now.
