Found June 09, 2012 on The Outside Corner:
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...

"Rusty" Santana gets lit up by Yankees

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 appeared to pick up right where he left...

Kevin Millwood, Five Relievers Throw Rare Combined No-Hitter Against Dodgers (Video)

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...

Yankees rough up Santana, Mets

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 New York Yankees slammed him back to reality in a 9-1 win as Robinson Cano...

Subway Series Game Preview: Mets @ Yankees

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.

Mariners No Hit The Dodgers!!!

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...

Subway Series Game 1: Forgettable night for Mets

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...
