The Mariners’ combined no-hitter last night should be appreciated

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.

Regardless, celebrate a great achievement no matter how it’s done. Plus, the Mariners were in teal which made visually pleasing.
