  • 6 M's Pitchers Combine to No-Hit Dodgers!

    I can't remember such a feat since I've been alive - when was the last time 6 guys got together to no-hit a team? Pretty cool.
    Random fact: When I lived in Tucson from 2004-2010 I played rec league softball against the M's new closer Tom Wilhelmsen.
    I remember him being a goofy guy that played the heck out of left-center field and had a cannon arm...

    Congrats to the Mariners, nice team effort!

    Houston no hit the Yankees with 6 pitchers a few years ago. Oswalt started and left in the second with an injury

      The only drawback is it happened on a night when the Mariners were wearing those ugly turquoise shirts, lol. The one day the national lamestream media might begrudgingly pay an eensy weensie bit of attention to the Mariners and we have to look like that, lol.

      All kidding aside.

      One thing I think was cool about the game (beside the no-hitter lol) was the the game's lone run was scored by Ichiro after getting an infield single, then stealing second! Quintessential Ichiro comes through again!

          the first question that came to my mind was "who won"

          the Dodgers have been doing some amazing things this year and I thought they might have squeezed out a narrow win

          Sandy Koufax talks in autobiography the time he pitched a no-hitter (might have been the perfect game ) and "the announcer" most likely Scully went on and on about the greats in the game and Don Drysdale who was not at the game but listeing on the radio apparently with the Dodgers being such a weak hitting team said I don't care about the all time greats. "did we win"?

            I don't mean to throw water on the fire, and I could be mistaken, but didn't Faye Vincent change the rules some years ago -- the same time he took away Harvey Haddix's no-hitter through nine -- so that an official "no-hitter" cannot be considered a true no-no if more than one pitcher is used?
            Put it in the books.

                  This sounds right...similar as to when the yankees Andy Hawkins had a no-hitter in 1990 and lost because of unearned runs...was later ruled not a no-hitter

                    No, combined no-hitters are official no-hitters.

                      From the Pirates media Guide....

                      "...In accordance with the "Committee for Statistical Accuracy", the definition of a no-hit game is "one in which a pitcher, or pitchers completes a game of nine innings or more without allowing a hit" All other games, like Haddix' are "notable achievements" and will be listed seperately.
                      LETS GO BUCS!!

                        Thanks for clearing that up. ...I think. But how does that explain the Andy Hawkins game?

                          Hawkins was pitching on the road so he only pitched 8 innings thus his no-hitter falls short of the 9 inning requirement.

                            On July 13, 1991 the Orioles no-hit the A's with four pitchers as well.

                              First combined no-no was Babe Ruth and Ernie Shore. Ruth walked the first batter and was ejected for arguing. Shore came in,runner was caught stealing, then Shore retired the remaining 26 batters.
