Brewers Get Combined No-No, Jays Sweep O’s In Doubleheader

Jonathan Grant | September 12th, 2021

The no-hitters just won’t keep coming in 2021. Major League Baseball has never seen a season like this, and it was the Milwaukee Brewers that recorded the ninth no-no of the season on Saturday as they downed the Cleveland Indians 3-0. It did take a combined effort, but that doesn’t diminish the accomplishment too much at all. Corbin Burnes started the outing and went eight innings (with 14 K’s) on 115 pitches before being pulled. He had been perfect heading into the seventh, and he improved to 10-4 with the ‘W.’

Josh Hader completed it in the ninth, handing Cleveland the dubious distinction of being no-hit three times in one sole campaign. In other action, the Toronto Blue Jays did the 1-2 over the Baltimore Orioles, beating them twice on Saturday to continue their recent hot streak. In the first game, George Springer was the hero when he hit a two-out two-run homer in the seventh to give them an 11-10 win. Luis Gurriel had three RBI’s in the contest as well to aid his team’s strong finish. In the second game, they were held without a run and a hit in the first six innings but then exploded for 11 in the final inning to put up 22 combined runs over 14 innings against the woeful O’s. The Jays, now tied with the Yankees for the second AL Wild Card spot, hit four home runs in the pivotal inning as they eased (eventually) to an 11-2 result.
