Rays' Garza Throws No-Hitter

Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Matt Garza threw a no-hitter on Monday night—the first in franchise history. Garza faced the minimum 27 batters; the only baserunner for his opponents, the Detroit Tigers, came on a walk in the second inning. (The runner was then retired on a double play.) Garza’s no-hitter was the fifth thrown this season—and the sixth, if you count the perfect game that Armando Gallaraga lost on a blown call on what should have been the final out. That’s still two off from the record. That’s the most since seven were throw in 1991.
