Breaking News: Cincinnati Reds pitcher Wade Miley throws a no-hitter. This is the first of his career and the 17th no-hitter is Reds history against the Cleveland Indians.
The left-handed Miley was in complete control as he struck out eight Indians while only allowing two runners to get on base. One was a walk to Cesar Hernandez, and the other was Amed Rosario, who reached on a throwing error which led to Rosario getting to second base in the bottom of the sixth inning. Miley would get Jordan Luplow to fly out to end the inning and keep the no-hitter alive.
Wade Miley Throws a No-Hitter: The Details
Miley, age 34, was drafted in the first round back in 2008 by the Arizona Diamondbacks. Miley was called up late in 2011 and has spent the last eleven seasons with different organizations but has spent the last two seasons with the Reds. Coming into Friday’s game against the Indians, Miley on the season had a record of 3-2, with a 2.67 ERA.
As the game got into the later innings and neither team had scored, Miley kept dealing, and in the top of the ninth, the Indians made two costly errors and allowed an infield single which led to the Reds scoring three runs, which would be the final score of the game.
With this no-hitter, Miley becomes the fourth pitcher this season, joining Joe Musgrove, Carlos Rodon, and John Means. Miley would have a final line score of 9 IP, 0 ER, 8 K, 1 BB.
