Detroit Tigers’ Spencer Turnbull shuts down Seattle Mariners for MLB’s fifth no-hitter

Spencer Turnbull walked out of the bullpen Tuesday night feeling terrible, hoping a shaky pregame warmup would dissipate once he stepped on the mound.

A few hours later, Turnbull was being slammed in the face with a shaving cream pie and doused in water, beer and baby powder by his Detroit Tigers teammates on the grass at T-Mobile Park.

There was plenty to celebrate after Turnbull joined the parade of no-hitters in 2021.

“It is by far the best night of my life, most exciting and it’s definitely kind of like one of those landmark stamps on my career up to this point,” Turnbull said.

The 28-year-old right-hander tossed the fifth no-hitter of the major league season, baffling the Seattle Mariners in Detroit’s 5-0 win.

Another No-No for Nolan? No Problem (and no questions asked…)

“Among those on the field celebrating Ryan’s lucky #7 are promising young slugger Juan Gonzalez; star first baseman Rafael Palmiero; rookie catcher Pudge Rodriguez; rotation-mate Kevin Brown; MVP runner-up Ruben Sierra; and Ryan’s close friend/pitching coach/fitness guru Tom House, who is almost famous for catching Hank Aaron’s 715th home run.”
