CLEVELAND – Cincinnati’s Wade Miley drove through Major League Baseball’s fourth no-hitter this season when he won his first no-hitter career 3-0 against the Cleveland Indians on Friday night.
The left-handed man was in control of a Cleveland team that entered the series at just .0.213 but won five in a row and nine out of eleven. But the Indians didn’t get a baserunner until the sixth when Amed Rosario hit second baseman Nick Senzel’s throwing error. Senzel was actually charged with two flaws in the game. Miley has thrown 106 spaces.
Franmil Reyes was the closest to the Indians’ hit, but his hard blow in the fifth hit right on shortstop Kyle Farmer, who knocked him down and had ample time to knock the lazy bat out.
Miley, who only scored 4-1 in eight career starts against the Indians, scored four goals for the first time in Cleveland’s lineup.
34-year-old Miley’s no-hitter is the fourth of the majors this season. The Indians were not met by Carlos Rodon from Chicago last month.
According to ESPN Stats & Information, there has only been one season in MLB history with four no-hitters thrown before the end of May. In 1917, the 4th no-hitter of the season was thrown on May 5th.
Miley’s second season with Cincinnati. He has also promoted Houston, Milwaukee, Baltimore, Seattle, Boston, and Arizona.
Cincinnati’s last no-hitter was from Homer Bailey in 2013 – his second at the club.
