Kevin Millwood, Five Relievers Throw Rare Combined No-Hitter Against Dodgers (Video)


Well, that's one way to do it.

The Seattle Mariners used a record six pitchers Friday night to combine for a no-hitter in a 1-0 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Starter Kevin Millwood was on track for a no-no, having logged six innings with six strikeouts and one walk, but he felt a twinge in his groin when warming up for the seventh. He was pulled, and Charlie Furbush, Stephen Pryor, Lucas Luetge, Brandon League and Tom Wilhelmsen combined to close out the game while the Mariners' lineup scratched across a run.

"Those guys got all the tough outs," Millwood said. "First six, it is what it is. I've seen a lot of people do that. From seven, eight, nine — those guys got all those outs, and that was special to see."

It was a true team effort to record the fourth no-hitter in Major League Baseball this year — just the 10th time in the game's history that a team has put together a combined no-hitter.

The win wasn't without drama, of course, as the Mariners walked enough Dodgers to make things interesting. But in the end, a Seattle team known as much for its offensive woes as its sometimes shaky pitching pulled off both ends of the bargain to make the history books.
