Homer Bailey Tosses No-Hitter: Which MLB Pitcher is Next in Line For No-No?
In a historic 2012 season, MLB fans were spoiled last year when seven different pitchers tossed a no-hitter. However, it took nearly half of the 2013 season for just one pitcher to throw a no-no. Oddly enough, the last pitcher in 2012 to throw nine hit-less innings was Cincinnati Reds starter Homer Bailey.
So, Bailey figured he would just stick with the program and throw the first MLB no-hitter in 2013 as he blanked the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday night. Despite being a last-place team, the Giants have some firepower on offense and aren’t exactly the easiest team to keep hit-less throughout a complete game — this is the same San Francisco squad that won the 2012 World Series for crying out loud! While the story is definitely Bailey’s dominance, it’s going to be interesting to see how the no-hitter impacts the defending champions.
The Reds’ faithful were able to enjoy this Bailey no-hitter a little more than his outing last September considering it was at Great American Ballpark and the other one came against the Pittsburgh Pirates on the road. Surely, Cincy fans would much rather see the Reds turn it on and propel themselves toward the top of the NL Central, but this excellent start should be a step in the right direction.
Now, the conversation is turning to the future and which MLB hurler will be the next to toss a no-hitter. I’m going with Jeff Samardzija, who has come close to bringing the Chicago Cubs their first no-hitter since 2008 numerous times this season. Who do you think will throw the next no-hitter or even perfect game at the MLB level?
