Last night, six Mariners pitchers combined to no-hit the Dodgers. It was the 10th combined no-hitter in big league history.
Some people have said that it’s not as exciting or worthy of a no-hitter thrown by one pitcher. I disagree.
Even though there are fewer combined no-hitters, it’s still a tough task. Putting in relievers to try to finish a job is tough. And you could say because there were different relievers, it made hitting for the Dodgers harder. But I still believe that it is tougher on the relievers because they all knew that they had to be near perfect to achieve it.
Regardless, celebrate a great achievement no matter how it’s done. Plus, the Mariners were in teal which made visually pleasing.
