Seattle Mariners pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma no-hit the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday at Safeco Field in Seattle. It was the fourth no-hitter of the 2015 season and the fifth in Mariners team history, with the last coming by Felix Hernandez in 2012. The National League had 12 straight no-hitters with the last American League no-no belonging to Hernandez.
The Japanese righty walked three batters and struck out seven and threw 116 pitches in the game. The Mariners defeated the Orioles 3-0.
This was definitely a bright spot in a tough season for the Mariners, who were thought to be shopping Iwakuma at the trade deadline. Seattle now has a record of 54-61 and set 7.5 games out of the AL West and 6.5 out of the Wild Card race.
