Milwaukee Brewers’ Corbin Burnes, Josh Hader combine for MLB’s record ninth no-hitter

In a sometimes sticky season, Corbin Burnes got a grip on history.

Milwaukee’s ace combined with reliever Josh Hader to pitch baseball’s record ninth no-hitter this season, breaking a mark set when pitchers began throwing overhand in 1884 as the Brewers beat the Cleveland Indians 3-0 on Saturday night.

Months after Major League Baseball clamped down on pitchers’ use of illicit foreign substances following a rash of early no-hitters, Burnes cemented 2021 as the Season of the No-No with just the second no-hitter in Brewers history.

“It was a masterpiece,” Milwaukee manager Craig Counsell said.

Burnes (10-4) struck out 14 with a career-high 115 pitches over eight innings, taking a perfect game into the seventh while overpowering the Indians, who were no-hit for a record third time in 2021. All of those came with starter Zach Plesac on the mound.

Everyone's love for west coast stories (Dodgers/SF/the Padres) has kind of sucked the air out of any room to talk about the Brewers this year, but I feel as if they will be a handful in the play-offs.
