Fiers throws no-hitter, Astros defeat Dodgers 3-0
Mike Fiers has pitched the second no-hitter in the major leagues in nine days, leading the Houston Astros to a 3-0 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday night.
Fiers (6-9) struck out Justin Turner on his 134th pitch to end it and threw his glove high into the air for his first no-hitter and fifth in the big leagues this season. Seattle's Hisashi Iwakuma tossed a no-no on Aug 12.
Acquired by the Astros at the trade deadline to help with their playoff push, Fiers has been stellar in his three starts for Houston. This was something else, though.
Having never thrown a complete game in his five-year career, Fiers was dominant Friday. He struck out 10 and walked three, retiring the final 21 batters.
Nolan Ryan applauded from a suite as Fiers was mobbed by his teammates at the mound after finishing the 11th no-hitter in Astros history.
