[MLB] Seattle throws no hit/no run game - but used 6 pitchers
Mariners get a 1-0 win over Dodgers with a no-hitter, but used multiple pitchers(6 this time) to get it. It doesn't happen often(10x in MLB history), but most have been recently as pitchers rarely throw full 9 inning games anymore.
The 10th combined no-hitter in major league history tied the record with six pitchers used and was the first since a six-pack of Astros no-hit the New York Yankees in June 2003. Three combined no-hitters happened in a two-year span of 1990 and 1991, including then California Angels' Mark Langston and Mike Witt combining to no-hit the Mariners 1-0 on April 11, 1990.
The oddity to this no-hitter was the amount of changes Wedge made. Furbush was a spot decision after Millwood pulled himself out with what was later announced as a mild right-groin strain. Wedge then went to Pryor (1-0) who impressively got the final out of the seventh before walking a pair to open the eighth.
Pryor was followed by Lucas Luetge, and then it was League, who has temporarily lost his closer role, but rediscovered his biting slider to get out of a major jam with runners on second and third and just one out in the eighth. Finally, it was Wilhelmsen, picking up his third save of the season and easily his most memorable.

And the pitcher who got the win only got 1 out and then proceeded to walk 2 batter before being pulled.

I always thought they should change the pitcher's win into a scoring official's decision.
You're so vain... I bet you think this post is about you.
