Congratulations to Matt Garza of the Tampa Bay Devil Rays who threw a no-hitter against the Detroit Tigers today.
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Matt Garza pitched the first no-hitter in Tampa Bay Rays history and the fifth in the major leagues this season, beating the Detroit Tigers 5-0 Monday night.
Garza faced the minimum 27 batters, allowing only a second-inning walk, for a team that’s often been on the wrong end of pitching gems lately.
The Rays have been held hitless three times since last July, including a pair of perfect games that were thrown against them.
The last time there were at least five no-hitters in a season was 1991, when Hall of Famer Nolan Ryan threw one of seven in the big leagues that year, according to STATS LLC.
