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.

    I remember late last season when the Mariners FINALLY won a few. The TV announcer was going crazy: "The Mariners have won TWO of their last THREE GAMES!!" To be correct, the Mariners had just won two of their last NINETEEN games.

      Yeah...they're trying to sell a product here. They have to get somewhat excited when good things happen. The Mariners didn't finish the season on a 2-17 run. You're just wrong.

    5 pitchers in three innings? I don't even watch baseball and I know that's freakin' amazing! 6 pitchers and no hitter is just crazy.

    Pretty cool. Wow, only done 10 times in major league history. Btw CNN, it's "an RBI single," not "a RBI single."

      No Pat....it Is A RBI single. The only time you use "an" is if the next word starts with A E I O or U.
      Look it up....or just ask your first grade teacher.

    @Andrew, Because I don't watch baseball doesn't mean I don't have other hobbies. But what does my comment have to do with hobbies? And why did it cause you to go into a rage?

    I watched the entire game. Was completely bummed for Millwood when he went out with the injury. After that, it just kept getting better. Amazing!!! Baseball history!!!

    Dock Ellis' LSD no-no remains THE standard in pitching. Respect to the Mariners, but their combined efforts are mere child's play by comparison.

    yea but; where did the Dodgers play the night before, Philly? Now there's some brilliance in scheduling. Don't think it matters; let's see how the pitching goes for Seattle during the rest of the series. GO Dodgers!
