Gray’s effort was the best 2015 Opening Day effort of many. The Washington Nationals’ Max Scherzer and the Cleveland Indians Cory Kluber’ no-hit their Opening Day opponents through 5 2/3 innings on Monday.
Also on Monday, the Detroit Tigers’ David Price threw 4 1/3 innings of perfect ball before the Minnesota Twins’ Kennys Vargas broke it up with a one-out single.
The Toronto Blue Jays’ Drew Hutchinson threw 3 2/3 no-hit innings before the New York Yankees’ Brian McCann singled to right.
Feller, who threw an Opening Day no-no for the Cleveland Indians on August 16, 1940, tossed two additional no-hitters for Cleveland.
