Tomorrow is June 13. On June 13 of last year, Matt Cain pitched the fourth no-hitter of the season (fifth if you count the combined effort of Mariners pitchers against the Dodgers last June 8). Admittedly last year felt like an anomaly, but we've had none this year; Homer Bailey's still stands as the most recent no-hitter. I'm just wondering if there's any identifiable reason for this to be happening? Did I miss a change to the mound or something? Or just chance?
For the record, there were six no-hitters each in 2010 and 2012 (again, seven with the combined M's effort), three in 2011.
