Five weeks, four nine-inning no-hitters in MLB. Reds left-hander Wade Miley made it No. 4 on Friday night.
The 34-year-old veteran zipped Cleveland 3-0 at Progressive Field after the Reds broke a scoreless tie in the top of the ninth inning. Miley struck out eight, walked one and threw 114 pitches in the effort. An error by Reds second baseman Nick Senzel accounted for Cleveland’s only other baserunner.
Miley retired Jordan Luplow for the final out on a ground ball to shortstop Kyle Farmer, who had to make an off-balance throw.
Luplow made the final out in White Sox left-hander Carlos Rodon’s no-hitter against Cleveland on April 14.
Miley’s no-hitter was the second in MLB in three days. The Orioles’ John Means no-hit the Mariners in Seattle on Wednesday.
They joined Rodon and the Padres’ Joe Musgrove as official no-hit pitchers this year. The Diamondbacks’ Madison Bumgarner threw seven no-hit innings in Game 2 of a doubleheader against the Braves, a game scheduled for seven innings, on April 25. MLB only recognizes nine-inning no-hitters, however.
