Homer Bailey Throws No-Hitter, Reds Shutout Giants, 3-0

Cincinnati pitcher Homer Bailey threw a no-hitter, his second in a ten-month time-span, as the Reds shutout the San Francisco Giants, 3-0, on Tuesday night, at the Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Bailey, who improved to improved to 5-6 with the win, faced only 28 batters, allowing only one walk, while striking out nine, in a 109-pitch masterpiece.

For Bailey, who made his Major League debut back in 2007, it’s his second no-hitter, after tossing one against the Pittsburgh Pirates on September 28 of last season.

Bailey became the third Reds pitcher with more than one no-hitter, joining Jim Maloney and Johnny Vander Meer, who threw back-to-back no-hitters in 1938, in twirling the 17th no-hitter in Reds’ history.

The 27-year old Bailey becomes one of only 28 pitchers in history to have thrown multiple no-hitters, with Cy Young, Sandy Koufax, Bob Feller, Larry Corcoran and Nolan Ryan being the only five that have thrown three or more.
