Mike Fiers Fires 300th MLB No-Hitter

Mike Fiers Fires 300th MLB No-Hitter

Mike Fiers just threw his second career no-hitter last night, striking out Eugenio Suarez on a curveball in the dirt for his 131st pitch of the night.

Fiers went nine innings, striking out six while walking two men, facing two more than the minimum. It was his highest Game Score, beating out his first no-hitter by a single point.

It is not often that we get to see starters toss 100 pitches in a given outing and deliver a no-hitter nonetheless. Maybe it was because Fiers is currently in his ninth major league season and is seen by A’s manager Bob Melvin as that grizzled veteran, one who can handle a heavier workload. Maybe it was because Melvin wanted Fiers to join Max Scherzer, Jake Arrieta and Homer Bailey as the only active pitchers with two career no-hitters. Whatever the case may be, Fiers woke up yesterday morning with a 6.81 ERA, giving him the highest ERA by a pitcher to ever throw a no-hitter. That is as improbable as it gets. Oh, and there was this game-saving catch by Ramon Laureano, which seems to accompany literally every single no-hitter and perfect game thrown nowadays:

Mike Fiers was just glad that they got the stadium lights fixed so he could go out there and toss a gem.
