The Seattle Mariners threw a combined no-hitter in their 1-0 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday night, just a week after Johan Santana no-hit the Cardinals at Citi Field for the first no-no in Mets history. The combined no-hitter is the first since the Houston Astros no-hit the Yankees on June 11, 2003 in a game started by Roy Oswalt, who left after one inning.
Tonight's no-hitter was started by Kevin Millwood, who left after the sixth inning with soreness in his right groin. It's Millwood's second career no-hitter, with the first coming on April 27, 2003 when he was a member of the Philadelphia Phillies. The relievers to follow Millwood in tonight's game were Charlie Furbush, Stephen Pryor, Lucas Luetge, Brandon League, and Tom Wilhelmson.
As what seemingly happens in all no-hitters, the Mariners were aided by a fortunate call. Charlie Furbush threw a ball away on a hit by Elian Herrera in the seventh inning, and the play was ruled a two-base error on Furb...

Every once in a while you run across a landmark moment in a baseball season, so compelling it becomes larger than life and, yes, even larger than an in-your-grill tabloid headline.
It'd be one thing to obsess over this weekend's Subway Series -- the Yankees and Mets are the Saudi Arabia of rivalries, an endless resource -- but the most important story will occur Friday night...

FLUSHING, N.Y., June 7, 2012 – The New York Mets today...
Abner Doubleday invented the game of baseball in Cooperstown, New York in 1839. By today’s standards that game, their original equipment, and some of their rules seem archaic; there were no helmets, no inside chest protectors, no oversized gloves, and no replays of disputable home runs. Over the past 173 years, the game has seen many changes. It has appropriately [...]
One week after Johan Santana threw the first no-hitter in franchise history, it was the Mets who found themselves in danger of being no-hit. Santana struggled mightily in his encore start at Yankee Stadium, serving up back-to-back-to-back home runs in the third inning Friday and four homers total during a 9-1 loss to the Yankees. Santana appeared to pick up right where he left...
Well, that's one way to do it. The Seattle Mariners used a record six pitchers Friday night to combine for a no-hitter. Starter Kevin Millwood was on track for a no-no, having logged six innings with six strikeouts and one walk, but he felt a twinge in his groin when warming up for the seventh. He was pulled, and Charlie Furbush, Stephen Pryor, Lucas Luetge, Brandon League and...
Johan Santana made history the last time he took the mound.
A win over the New York Yankees might be satisfying enough this time.
Coming off the first no-hitter in the history of the New York Mets, Santana will be well-rested when he takes the mound at Yankee Stadium on Friday night for the first installment of the 2012 Subway Series.
Santana (3-2, 2.38 ERA) cemented his status...
NEW YORK -- Only a few innings in, the question for Johan Santana became not how many hits he would give up, but how many home runs. The buzz from Santana throwing the first no-hitter in New York Mets history last Friday ended with a thud Friday night in the Subway Series opener at Yankee Stadium. The New York Yankees slammed him back to reality in a 9-1 win as Robinson Cano...
Kevin Millwood and five Seattle relievers combined on a no-hitter, the third in franchise history, and the Mariners beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 1-0 on Friday night.
The no-hitter was the fourth in the majors this season, joining gems pitched by the Angels' Jered Weaver, the Mets' Johan Santana and White Sox right-hander Philip Humber, who threw a perfect game at Seattle...
Kevin Millwood kept the Los Angeles Dodgers hitless through the first six innings on Friday, but when a groin injury during warm ups prevented him from returning to the game five additional Seattle pitchers came out of the bullpen to finish the job and complete one of the most unusual no hitters in baseball history. It was a pitchers duel between Millwood and Dodgers starter...
The Mets were taken down a peg last night by the Yankees in an embarrassing performance by Johan Santana and his mates.
Tonight the Mets look for revenge as Dillion Gee opposes Phil Hughes.
Once again Lucas Duda will DH and Captain Kirk will patrol RF, as the injured Omar Quintanilla will start at SS.

The natural story line for this game would be Subway Series, is Interleague play relevant, last actual event of interleague play, blah blah. However, today the story line is Johan Santana. Eight days ago Johan made history as he became the first pitcher in Mets history to throw a no-hitter and raise the spirits of queens. On a week’s rest after throwing more pitches than he has...
NEW YORK -- Only a few innings in, the question for Johan Santana became not how many hits he would give up, but how many home runs. Robinson Cano homered twice, and combined with Nick Swisher and Andruw Jones for three straight homers in the third inning as the New York Yankees thrashed Santana and the New York Mets, 9-1, Friday night at Yankee Stadium. To further humble Santana...
The Seattle Mariners happen to be my favorite team because I live near Seattle, but tonight was a very special one for me. As usual I watch the Mariner game almost every time they broadcast one. I have never watched a no hitter through the entire game until tonight so this was amazing. Kevin Millwood, who is a Mariner as of this year started, off tremendous tonight with a great...
There was only one positive thing about attending another Met game with Squawker Lisa that ended in a shambles for my team. Lisa spent two innings on a long, slow-moving drink line because she wanted to check out the Malibu party deck and got back to our seats in the top of the sixth. She looked at the scoreboard and said, "Holy bleep, it's still a no-hitter!" On the...
