On The Board
Mike Fiers (Houston Astros)
In the first victory with his new team and the first complete game of his career, he hurled the fifth no-hitter of the season and number 291 in MLB. Fiers is the fifth pitcher to throw a no hit-no run game in the first 3 starts after being traded to a new team. It is the eleventh no-hitter in Astros' franchise history and the first in their current ballpark. Seven no-hitters have been lauched in Interleague games and Houston is the first to do it for both Leagues.
