Here’s the final out of the game.
Kevin Millwood started the game and threw six no-hit innings against the Dodgers. When Millwood came out to the mound to throw the seventh inning he quit after one warm-up toss. It turns out Millwood left the game due to a mild right groin strain.
Here’s Millwood explaining the injury. (Note: Whoever shot this needs to take a class in shooting video.)
After Millwood exited the game Charlie Furbush, Stephen Pryor, Lucas Luetge, Brandon League and Tom Wilhelmsen kept the no-hitter intact. Wilhelmsen had the honor of closing out the no-hittter.
Stephen Pryor was credited with the win as Dodger starter Nathan Evovaldi was keeping the Mariners scoreless. Evovaldi threw six innings allowing just 5 hits.It was the first career win for Pryor, a rookie.
The six pitchers used by the Mariners is the most used. It was also the 10th combined no-hitter in baseball history. The first one by the 1917 Boston Red Sox Babe Ruth was the starter.
