5 Rays combine for 7-inning no-hitter

The only official no-hitter in Rays history still belongs to Matt Garza, who went nine innings without allowing a hit against the Tigers on July 26, 2010. What five Rays pitchers accomplished in their 4-0 win over the Indians on Wednesday afternoon at Tropicana Field won’t be remembered quite the same way, but it won’t be forgotten anytime soon, either.

Collin McHugh, Josh Fleming, Diego Castillo, Matt Wisler and Pete Fairbanks pitched a combined seven-inning no-hitter that won’t go in the record books as an official no-hitter, much like Madison Bumgarner’s solo seven-inning effort for the D-backs on April 25. Fairbanks pumped his fist and shouted when right fielder Vidal Bruján made a leaping grab at the warning track for the final out, but there was no dogpile near the mound, no raucous celebration around the infield.

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Major League Baseball’s official statistician, neither a team nor an individual pitcher will be credited with an official no-hitter in a scheduled seven-inning game of a doubleheader—unless that game goes to extras. Per Elias, any game of fewer than nine innings in which a pitcher or pitchers do not allow a hit should be considered as a “notable achievement.”

It will probably be forgotten extremely soon.

Something has to be known/remembered before it can be forgotten. Maybe that's what they're getting at.
