Another night, another no-no.
Joining Joe Musgrove, Carlos Rodon and John Means on the list of 2021 no-hitters is 34-year-old Cincinnati Reds starter Wade Miley, who was utterly dominant against the Cleveland Indians on Friday night. In fact, what was more concerning than whether or not he'd be able to complete the no-hitter was whether or not his offense would be able to muster up the needed run support to get him the win. Fortunately, in the top of the ninth, three runs were scored thanks to a throwing error, a balk and an RBI base knock, and that was more than enough to give Miley the final push into the bottom half of the last frame.
Miley has had ups and downs throughout his whole career, with high points coming in Arizona (he was an All-Star there in 2012), Milwaukee (he had three starts and a 1.80 ERA in the 2018 NLCS) and Houston (he went 14-6 in 2019). However, a no-no trumps all of these other achievements without much question.
It was the 17th no-hitter in Cincinnati Reds history, and the first since Homer Bailey threw one in 2013 against the San Francisco Giants. On the other side is the Cleveland Indians, who were also the victims of Carlos Rodon's gem on April 14.
Oh, and did we mention that Sean Manaea of the Oakland Athletics is also in the middle of throwing a no-hitter as we speak?
