On The Board
Hisashi Iwakuma (Seattle)
Seventeenth pitcher since 1900 to launch a no-hitter in the first complete game of his career. He is the second Japan-born hurler to throw a no hit-no run game and both did it against the same team. This is also the first no-hitter in the American League since 2012, and during that time there were 12 in the National League. The last three no-no's in the AL have been executed by Seattle, a franchise which reaches a total of 5 no-hitters (all played at home).
