Pick Six: Mariners Use Six Pitchers To No-Hit Dodgers
The team with the best record in baseball, the Los Angeles Dodgers (37-22) looked like the worst team in baseball yesterday.
Andre Ethier and the rest of his LA Dodgers were shut down on all cylinders first by Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Kevin Millwood, before he had to leave the game in the 7th inning with a groin injury.
Seattle relief pitcher Charlie Furbush immediately came into keep the no-hit bid rolling, then the baton was passed off to young reliever Stephen Pryor, then Lucas Luetge, then Brandon League, finally Mariners closer Tom Wilhelmsen came into save the day, as he sealed the deal and placed his team in the history books!
This was the first combined no-hit bid, since the Houston Astros did it in 2003 against the New York Yankees, at the old Yankee Stadium!
