CINCINNATI — Homer Bailey threw his second no-hitter in 10 months and the first in the majors this season, pitching the Cincinnati Reds to a 3-0 victory over the slumping San Francisco Giants on Tuesday night.
Bailey (5-6) became the third Reds pitcher with more than one no-hitter, joining Jim Maloney and Johnny Vander Meer — still the only big leaguer to toss two in a row. Bailey beat the Pirates 1-0 in Pittsburgh last Sept. 28 and got another 17 starts later.
The last pitcher to throw one no-hitter and then another before anyone else in the majors accomplished the feat was Hall of Famer Nolan Ryan, according to STATS.
Baseball’s career strikeout king did it for the California Angels on Sept. 28, 1974, against Minnesota, and June 1, 1975, vs. Baltimore.
Bailey walked Gregor Blanco leading off the seventh, the only Giants batter to reach base. First baseman Joey Votto threw out Blanco as he tried to advance from second to third on a grounder.

Homer Bailey had plenty to celebrate Tuesday night after tossing his second career no-hitter.
One might even be led to believe that Bailey went out on the town afterward. However, the reality is that he celebrated modestly at home.
The native Texan said he called his family, listened to country music, and responded to more than 200 text messages late Tuesday following the historic...

Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Homer Bailey made history Tuesday night, as he notched the 280th no-hitter in Major League Baseball history against the San Francisco Giants.
It was also Bailey’s second no-no, and oddly enough the 27-year-old also threw baseball’s last no-hitter back on September 28, 2012. So, he’s making quite a habit of holding opponents hitless.
Cincinnati Reds pitcher Homer Bailey pitched a no-hitter against the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday night, even with the Reds Twitter account doing all they could to jinx the effort. However, this may start a new trend with twitter accounts actually doing the reverse jinx when their team’s pitchers are on fire. Congrats to Homer Bailey for his perfect game as he finished the game...
Homer Bailey pitched his second no hitter tonight for the Cincinnati Reds, becoming one of just a handful of pitchers in MLB history to throw consecutive MLB no-nos. Bailey threw the last no hitter in the big leagues last September. Considering we're talking about something done only a few times in the entire history of baseball, this is a very impressive accomplishment....
The Reds go 2-4 again but Homer gives us another No-No and now has the last 2 MLB No-Hitters. A bad week capped off by greatness.

Homer Bailey threw a no-hitter last night, putting him in the same group as a lot of other people. It was actually his second no-hitter, putting him in a much smaller group of guys who have done it twice. This post is not really about Homer Bailey’s no-hitter — I’m working on one of those too, but it’s a little more research intensive — but about the fact that Homer Bailey...
After throwing a no-hitter last season, Cincinnati Reds starter Homer Bailey has found a way to follow up the performance...
With his second no-hitter...
His ninth inning went fairly quietly... Brandon Crawford was retired on a comebacker, Tony Abreu was struck out on a 97 Miles Per Hour fastball and Gregor Blanco was retired 5-3 for the last out of the game...

Homer Bailey made history last September when he tossed the first no-hitter for the Reds since Tom Browning’s perfect game in 1988. Last night he repeated history and became the first pitcher to throw a no-hitter this season and nearly had a perfect game in the Reds 3-0 win over the Giants.
I'm pretty sure that Homer Bailey of the Reds is one of the most unlikely players in league history with two no hitters. But honestly, Bailey has turned himself into one of the better pitchers in baseball this season. His 2.9 fWAR leads a very good Reds staff. His 111 innings pitched lead Cincinnati, and is good for 16th in baseball. His 2.67 xFIP is sixth among all qualified...
Okay, maybe this isn’t as far as a team could sink… Sure, the Giants aren’t in contention for the number 1 overall pick in the draft next year.
They’re only 3 games back in what I will gently call a competitive division.
They are mostly the same team that won a World Series last year, albeit with a couple of injury problems. More, it’s a lot of players playing under...
