Vólquez breaks no-hitter drought

The Miami Marlins’ Edinson Vólquez threw the major’s 296th no-hitter on Saturday, blanking the Arizona Diamondbacks 3-0 at Marlins Park.

The no-no breaks a drought dating back to April 21, 2016, when the Cubs’ Jake Arrieta no-hit the Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ballpark.

Vólquez struck out 10 and walked two D-Backs hitters but managed to face the minimum 27 batters, as both were retired on double plays.

It’s the sixth no-hitter in Florida/Miami Marlins history. Vólquez joins Al Leiter, Kevin Brown, A.J. Burnett, Anibal Sanchez and Henderson Alvarez in the club.
