I won the race against time, but the mods apparently let this one withstand the course of natural selection, so you win :)

Or, the 6th, sort of. Ridiculous.

Yet the Mets, with 48 years or so of existence, and a load of great pitchers, still don't have one. (I guess if they're ever going to have one, this is the year.)

No hitter score

Rays -1
Reds 0

Therefore the Reds are the better team. ;)

Nice game by Garza

Remember steroids? Those were fun.HGH is still around. I was thinking this could have more to do with the ban on stimulants.

Not everything has to revolve around drugs. It takes a lot of luck to pitch perfect games & no hitters...I think it's no more than a lucky season of luckily pitched games.

There are simply many things in this grand game that no amount of speculation can explain.

It would be interesting to see how many no hitters there has been this year compared to other somewhat rare accomplishment.Things like 3 HR games,5 hit games and so on.It's beginning to seem like no no's are turning into a nice accomplishment that's certainly news worthy but nothing really special.

This is nothing compared to 1990. As it stands now, there were officially 7 no hitters that season. Mark Langston and Mike Witt combined for the first one on April 11. In June of that year, Randy Johnson and Nolan Ryan each pitched no hitters, and then on the 29th of that month (I remember this clearly when ESPN showed the end of these games) both Dave Stewart and Fernando Valenzuela pitched no hitters on the same day. Dave Stieb pitched the last official no-hitter of that season, however, during that season there were other games that at the time we thought were no hitters until the next season when the official rules were changed to state that in order to be credited with a no hitter, there had to be 9 no hit innings. We had thought that Andy Hawkins, then pitching for the Yankees had no hit the White Sox, but because he was trailing in that game 4-0, he didn't pitch the 9th inning, the no hitter was stricken from the record. I also remember being at Riverfront Stadium that year on July 12 when Melido Perez had a no hitter against the Yankees through 6 innings. The announcement was shown on the scoreboard that the game had been called after 6 innings due to rain, and that Perez had no hit the Yanks. We stood and gave a standing ovation for an event that history now shows never happened, as it was another no hitter stricken from the record books.
