Garza pitches a no-hitter

Congratulations to the Rays' Matt Garza, who just completed the 5th no-hitter of 2010 and the first in Rays' franchise history. Garza made easy work of the Detroit Tigers, allowing only one baserunner on a second-inning walk; a double play immediately followed, and Garza wound up facing the minimum 27 over 9 innings. He also struck out six along the way. Hats off to him on his piece of history.

Interestingly, the Rays have now been involved in an astounding four no-hitters over the past two seasons. Last July, they were no-hit in the perfect game by Mark Buehrle; this past May, they were once again on the losing end of a perfect game, this one by Dallas Braden; in June, they were victimized by Edwin Jackson in his no-hitter.
