Arizona Diamondbacks’ Tyler Gilbert tosses MLB’s eighth no-hitter in first start

Arizona Diamondbacks rookie Tyler Gilbert, making his first big league start, tossed a no-hitter against the San Diego Padres in a 7-0 win Saturday night at Chase Field.

It was the eighth no-hitter of the season, matching the major league record set in 1884, the first season overhand pitching was allowed.

Gilbert, selected in the Triple-A portion of the Rule 5 draft last winter, had five strikeouts and three walks. He previously made three scoreless relief appearances with Arizona this season.

The only other pitchers to throw a no-hitter in their first career MLB start are Ted Breitenstein in 1891, Bumpus Jones in 1892 and Bobo Holloman in 1953, according to ESPN Stats & Information research.
