The Houston Astros tossed a combined no-hitter against Seattle on Saturday night, marking the second time in less than a month that the Mariners have fallen victim to a no-no.
Aaron Sanchez, making his Astros debut after his trade from the Toronto Blue Jays, tossed six innings of no-hit ball, yielding just three base runners on a hit batsman and a pair of walks. Will Harris, Joe Biagini and Chris Devenski each followed with single no-hit innings to complete the 9-0 win at Minute Maid Park.
The effort marked the Astros’ 12th no-hitter in franchise history, and the second combined no-no. Six Astros pitchers no-hit the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium in 2003. Three no-hit pitchers were at Minute Maid Park for Saturday’s team Hall of Fame inductions: Nolan Ryan Mike Scott and Larry Dierker.
