Cincinnati Reds Pitcher Homer Bailey Throws No-Hitter Against Pittsburgh Pirates

Last night, Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher, Homer Bailey threw a 1-0 no-hitter against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Homer dominated pirates hitters all night. 74 of his 115 pitches were strikes, which led to 10 strikeouts. The only Pirates to reach base were Clint Barnes and Andrew McCutchen. Barnes reached on a fielding error by Scott Rolen in the third, while McCutchen reached on a walk in the seventh. McCuthen was able to steal second base, but was later thrown out as he tried stealing third.

The Reds only run came from a sacrifice fly by Todd Frazier in the top of the 1st.

Homer's no-hitter is the seventh of the 2012 season, which ties the modern day MLB record. The 1990 and 1991 MLB seasons had seven no-hitters as well.
