From ESPN: Mariners catcher Jesus Montero ran around with his arms in the air looking for someone to join in the party.
After the final out of an odd no-hitter pitched by Kevin Millwood and five Seattle relievers, nobody was quite sure how to celebrate."I think we all took a second and looked around and were like, did that really happen -- and what do we do now?" shortstop Brendan Ryan said.
Yes, the Mariners pitched the fourth no-hitter of the major league season Friday night and by far the most unconventional.Millwood
left after six innings with a groin injury and a stream of Seattle
relievers continued to hold the Dodgers in check until Tom Wilhelmsen closed out a 1-0 win over Los Angeles for his third save.Seattle's six-pack of arms joined the Mets' Johan Santana, the Angels' Jered Weaver and White Sox right-hander Philip Humber
on the no-hit list of 2012. It was the second no-hitter at Safeco Field
this season after Humber's perfect game against the Mariners in April
-- the first two in the park's 13-year history.The six pitchers tied the record for the most used in a no-hitter and each played an important role, from Charlie Furbush quickly entering the game after Millwood left in the seventh to Brandon League
finding the nasty splitter that had eluded him in recent weeks to
Wilhelmsen being so oblivious that teammates had to tell him he just
completed a no-hitter. http://scores.espn.go.com/mlb/recap?gameId=320608112
In this case, 6 arms are better than 1.
We are about 1/3 of the way through the season and already 4 no-hitters have been thrown. In 1884, 8 no-hitters were thrown and in 1990 and 1991, seven no-hitters were thrown. Maybe there is a chance to tie or break the record this year.
