ANAHEIM, Calif. — Angels rookie pitcher Reid Detmers threw a no-hitter Tuesday in Anaheim, leading Los Angeles to a 12-0 win over the Tampa Bay Rays.
According to The Associated Press, Detmers, a 22-year-old lefty, threw 108 pitches, logging two strikeouts and one walk during the majors’ second no-hitter of the season. A seventh-inning grounder by the Rays’ Brett Phillips was ultimately scored as an error to Angels first baseman Jared Walsh.
“Getting the last out, that’s just something I’ve dreamed of ever since I was a little kid,” Detmers said of the achievement, according to a tweet by the Angels. “I didn’t think it’d ever happen.”
Following Tuesday’s win, Detmers was 2-1 with a 3.77 ERA this season, MLB.com reported.
The last major league rookie to throw a no-hitter was Arizona’s Tyler Gilbert, who led the Diamondbacks to a win over the San Diego Padres on Aug. 14, 2021, according to the AP. The Mets claimed this season’s first no-hitter against the Philadelphia Phillies on April 29, according to the news agency.
