Homer Bailey Has Thrown The First No-Hitter Of The 2013 Season

The Cincinnati Reds pitcher has recorded both of the last two no-nos in Major League Baseball.

Homer Bailey has made history — yet again. Tonight, against the defending World Series champion San Francisco Giants the 27-year-old Cincinnati Reds starter threw the second no-hitter of his career.

Bailey dominated the Giants, striking out nine while only allowing one base on balls in 109 pitches — 74 of which he threw for strikes. The no-hitter was sealed on a ground ball hit by Gregor Blanco directly to Reds third baseman Todd Frazier.

Amazingly, this is Bailey’s second no-hitter in 10 months. He was also the last pitcher to record a no-hitter during the 2012 season. The last time a pitcher recorded the MLB’s two most recent no-hitters was in 1974-75 when Bailey’s fellow Texan, Nolan Ryan, did it.

I’d say that deserves a Gatorade shower…

Or maybe two.
