Homer Bailey pitches second no-hitter!!!


While we wait for something interesting to happen before camp, something interesting did happen in Cincinnati sports today.

Homer Bailey just pitched a no-hitter against the San Francisco Giants in a 3-0 victory, pushing the Reds back to 12 games above 0.500 as they try to catch the Pirates, who have yet to begin their post-All-Star game swoon.

The last no-hitter in major league baseball was also by Homer Bailey, pitched in Pittsburgh on September 28th last year. So far there had been no no-hitters pitched in 2013.

A 7th inning walk was all that prevented Bailey from pitching the Reds' first perfect game since Tom Browning accomplished the feat in 1988 in a 1-0 victory over the LA Dodgers.

If i'm not mistaken, Bailey is a free agent at the end of this season, and pitching 2 no-hitters in his last 18 starts isn't a bad way to grease the wallets of owners and GM's looking for a starting pitcher in 2014.

Last year, Bailey was 13-10 with a 3.68 ERA (which isn't bad for a team's #4 starter).

This year, Bailey is now 5-6 with a 3.57 ERA.
