Usually you don’t call pitching a no-hitter a team
effort. It took six Seattle Mariner
pitchers to keep the Los Angeles Dodgers hitless Friday night at Safeco Field.
Here’s the final out of the game.
Kevin Millwood started the game and threw six no-hit
innings against the Dodgers. When
Millwood came out to the mound to throw the seventh inning he quit after one
warm-up toss. It turns out Millwood due
to a mild right groin strain.Here’s Millwood explaining the injury. (Note: Whoever
shot this needs to take a class in shooting video.)
After Millwood exited the game Charlie Furbush, Stephen Pryor, Lucas Luetge,
Brandon League and Tom Wilhelmsen kept the no-hitter intact. Wilhelmsen had the
honor of closing out the no-hittter.
Pryor was credited with the win as Dodger starter Nathan Evovaldi was keeping
the Mariners scoreless. Evovaldi threw
six innings allowing just 5 hits.
It was the first career win for Pryor, a rookie.
