Iwakuma Throws No-Hitter

Mariners Pitcher Tosses No HitterSeattle Mariners pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma threw a no-hitter Wednesday night in a 3-0 win against the Baltimore Orioles. Iwakuma’s gem is the fifth no-hitter in M’s history. The righty struck out seven, walked three and didn’t hit a batter while becoming the oldest pitcher since Randy Johnson in 2004 to throw a no-hitter.

The Orioles’ best chance at getting to Iwakuma came in the fourth inning when he walked two batters. Iwakuma struck out the next batter to end the inning and didn’t let anyone on base the rest of the game. When Gerardo Parra’s two-out, ninth-inning drive to the dropped into centerfielder Austin Jackson’s glove to finish the no-hitter, the Safeco Field crowd of 25,661 stood and roared.

“I can’t find the words to express my feelings,” Iwakuma said through an interpreter after the game. “I’m truly happy.” Iwakuma joins Hideo Nomo as the only Japanese-born pitchers to throw a no-hitter.

The game was a highlight of the Mariners season. The team hasn’t won as much as expected, but days like Wednesday make up for a lot of losses. Even though it’s been a tough season, Hardwick & Pendergast, P.S. supports our baseball team all year around.
