Cincinnati's Wade Miley is pitching a no-hitter through eight innings against the Cleveland Indians on Friday night. The left-hander has been in control of a Cleveland team that entered the series batting just .213 but has won five straight and nine of 11. The Indians didn't get a baserunner until the sixth, when Amed Rosario reached on second baseman Nick Senzel's throwing error.
Four no-hitters in less than two months. Totally normal.
Determined to put an embarrassing night of unwelcome history behind them, the Indians came out swinging Saturday night. César Hernández connected for a three-run triple, José Ramírez had two RBIs and Aaron Civale pitched seven strong innings to stay unbeaten as Cleveland rebounded after being no-hit for the second time in 24 days by belting the Cincinnati Reds 9-2. The Indians became the 18th team to be no-hit twice in the same season on Friday, when Cincinnati's Wade Miley shut them down for the majors' fourth no-no in 2021.
