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.”

White Sox lefty Carlos Rodon throws no-hitter against Cleveland after losing perfect game in ninth inning

The perfect game club nearly had a new member. A no-hitter ended being the consolation prize.

White Sox starter Carlos Rodon has thrown a no-hitter and he was perfect through 8 1/3 innings. He hit Cleveland catcher Roberto Perez with a pitch on the foot with two strikes and one out in the ninth. That would end up being the only blemish for Rodon.

“On a toe ball,” Rodon said after the game when asked where his head was at the moment, alluding to where the pitch hit Perez.
