Found July 08, 2013 on Red Hot Mama:
Here’s a picture from the no hitter against the Pirates last September.

All he has to do is throw another one tonight and he can join the likes of Johnny Vander Meer who was the last one to throw back-to-back no-hitters–only 75 years ago. Bailey will be taking on the Brewers tonight at 8:10 pm ET at Miller Park. The Brewers are in a sore state: 35-52 and dead...
