Lost My Way:
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, Nate Eovaldi. Seattle was able to get the first and only run in the game on a Kyle Seager seventh inning single off Dodgers reliever Scott Elbert that scored Ichiro Suzuki.
After Millwood was no longer able to return to the game, Charlie Furbush pitched the first two-thirds of the seventh inning followed by Stephen Pryor who walked two batters before retiring the final batter of the seventh by way of the K. When it was all said and done, Pryor picked up his first win on the season. Following Pryor was Lucas Luetge who recorded the first out of the eighth inning followed by Brandon League who got the next two batters out. With five pitchers already combining for eight innings of no hit ball, it was up to Tom Wihelmsen for the final three outs.
The Dodgers went down 1-2-3 in the ninth and the Mariners tied the MLB record for most pitchers used in a no-hitter. It was the fourth (Humber, Weaver, Santana) no-hitter in baseball this season and the fourth time since 1900 that the team with the best record in baseball was held without a single hit in a game. TL;DR
It took six Seattle pitchers to no hit the Los Angeles Dodgers in a 1-0 win.Dodgers vs. Mariners Boxscore

All in all, it’s been a good couple of weeks for the Seattle Mariners. The Mariners find themselves getting some national attention, the first since Philip Humber threw a perfect game against them.

Seattle Mariners right hander Kevin Millwood's ability to make his next start won't be known until at least Tuesday. Millwood came out of Friday's start with a slight right groin strain, and an MRI indicates no real damage. But the

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...
Stephen Pryor is perhaps a name you should get used to hearing as he just picked up his first win in just his fourth MLB appearance. By they way, that win was a no-hitter...that was anchored by Kevin Millwood.
