Happy 43rd birthday to Kevin Millwood, who threw a no-hitter in 2003 for the Philadelphia Phillies.

At Veterans Stadium on Sunday, April 27, 2003, Millwood no-hit the San Francisco Giants for a 1-0 win. The Phillies were able to notch just four hits in the game, scoring their only run in the first inning on a Ricky Ledee homer. Millwood struck out 10 and walked three on the day.

On June 8, 2012, while pitching for the Seattle Mariners, Millwood pitched six innings of a combined no-hitter at Safeco Field against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Finishing the effort were Charlie Furbush (⅔ inn.), Stephen Pryor (⅓ inn.), Lucas Luetge (⅓ inn.), Brandon League (⅔ inn) and Tom Wilhelmsen (1 inn.).

Millwood retired after the 2012 season, winning 169 games over a 16-year career.
