Cincinnati, OH (Sports Network) - Homer Bailey pitched the last no-hitter of
the 2012 season. The Cincinnati right-hander then tossed the first one of the
2013 campaign on Tuesday night.
Bailey carried a perfect game into the seventh inning until walking Gregor
Blanco in the Reds' 3-0 win over the Giants at Great American Ball Park.
That was San Francisco's only baserunner of the night.
This is the 16th no-hitter in the history of the franchise and the second one
thrown by Bailey in a 20-start span, which includes a playoff game against the
Giants last year. He tossed one on Sept. 28, 2012 at Pittsburgh.
The 27-year-old right-hander tied a team record with his two no-hitters,
joining Jim Maloney and Johnny Vander Meer.
The Reds mobbed Bailey at the mound after Blanco grounded sharply to third
base to end the game.
