John Means did something that hadn’t been done by an individual pitcher for the Baltimore Orioles since 1969.
Means struck out 12 in a no-hitter against the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday afternoon. Jim Palmer was the last solo pitcher to throw a no-no for the O’s.
The Mariners had just one baserunner who reached on a wild pitch. Means did not give up a walk and threw 79 of his 113 pitches for strikes.
