Cincinnati Reds veteran Wade Miley tosses season's fourth no-hitter
If one can point to one big trend across the 2021 MLB season, it would have to be the rise of the no-hitter.
Entering Friday’s MLB action, there had already been three no-nos in the early season. So why not another to start off the weekend?
It was the first career no-hitter for Miley, a 34-year-old left-hander who is 89-87 with a 4.18 ERA in his career, and the 17th in Reds history.
This is the first time since 1990 that there have been two no-hitters in a three-day span, as Baltimore’s John Means no-hit the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday. It’s also the earliest there have been four no-hitters in a season since 1917.
At one point on Friday, it looked like it might turn into an extra-special night, as Sean Manaea of the Oakland A’s made it through seven innings without allowing one until Tampa Bay’s Mike Brosseau led off the eighth with a double.
With the latest no-hitter on the books, the MLB world reacted with astonishment, with no small amount of wonder about what is happening across Major League Baseball. Miley's catcher, though, had a very simple analysis.
Here is a sampling of other reactions across the sport.
