The Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday threw their second no-hitter in team history, and Corbin Burnes was a big part of it, but not all of it.

The Brewers ace put together the best start in Brewers history based on the advance statistic called game score. He did not allow a hit and walked just one batter while striking out 14 over eight shutout innings against the Cleveland Indians.

That gave Burnes a game score of 95, the highest for a Brewers pitcher.

However, the 115 pitches he threw were also a career high, so the Brewers used Josh Hader in the ninth inning. Hader pitched a 1-2-3 ninth to seal the 3-0 victory and give Milwaukee a combined no-hitter.

The Indians have now achieved some futility this season as they have been no-hit three times.

This is also the ninth no-hitter this year, which is the most in a season in MLB history.
