Six Mariners pitchers combine for no-hitter

Six pitchers from the Seattle Mariners combined to throw a no-hitter against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday, the 10th combined no-hitter in MLB history.

Kevin Millwood held the Dodgers scoreless in six innings before leaving the game with a groin injury. Charlie Furbush, Stephen Pryor, Lucas Leutge, Brandon League and Tom Wilhelmsen combined to throw for three scoreless innings to keep the no-hitter intact.

Third baseman Kyle Seager had a RBI single, scoring Ichiro Suzuki from second base in the Mariners' 1-0 victory.

It is the fourth no-hitter of the baseball season so far, following Jered Weaver of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Johan Santana of the New York Mets and Philip Humber of the Chicago White Sox.

    Actually before AN abbreviation or AN acronym vowel-sounding letters (take "an"):A E F H I L M N O R S X , so it would be AN RBI single and the CNN editors still missed it. Congrats Seattle! Loved the ballpark and the ‘Bring your own food’ when I visited in 2008, nice change from $9.50 beers and $5.00 hotdogs at Fenway.

      Still bitter about being cut from your JV high school team? Let it go, man. It is not healthy harboring such anger.

    My favourite teams: the Padres, the local Sioux City Explorers, and any team currently playing the LA Dodgers. Way to go Seattle.

    4 no hitters so far this season shows me 2 things:
    1. That for the most part, steroids have been removed from the game
    2. That for many years, steroids ruined alot of the pitching performances

      actually I just realized i am an idiot and should have never posted such a bad comment. I have low self esteem and shouldn't really even be using the Internet. I am sorry.

  6. bobcat (in a hat)©,

    One elderly couple is visiting another for supper. The two women go into the kitchen for a moment, leaving the men to talk.

    One of the men says to the other, "The Mrs. and I went to the nicest restaurant last night."

    "Is that right?" the other inquires, "What was it called?"

    "That's just it," he replies "I can't recall. "Say, what's the name of that red flower that has thorns all over it?"

    "A rose?" he responds.

    "YEAH, THAT'S IT!" he says energetically.

    He then whirls around and yells into the kitchen, "Hey, Rose! What was the name of that restaurant we went to last night!?"

    Baseball has changed a lot over the years. Used to be that a pitcher was changed after his stuff started to melt, or you needed an opposite armed hurler for an out. 6 pitchers?

    But one of the beauties of baseball is its mysteries and the innumerable ways to play and manage it. This is cool.

    Ah, my two favorite teams. Either way it had to end well for me. Congrats, Mariners. Note to team: it's the teal uniforms. Wear those more often, and luck will be with you. LOL.

    Six pitchers, really? And some didn't even pitch a whole inning?
    A no-hit win is more impressive when one pitcher has pitched the whole game. Rather than when the win is credited to more than one pitcher.

    6 pitchers combine for a no-hitter.
    Poetic justice would have been... for the 6 pitchers to lose the game.

    I'd help you, if I could. But, have no idea who you are or what could be causing it.

    Hang in there,
