A 12 months ago, there have been a record nine no-hitters within the majors.
Last weekend, six Tampa Bay Rays pitchers combined to hold a no-hit bid into the tenth inning of a scoreless game against the Boston Red Sox. The Red Sox broke up the no-hitter and scored twice in the highest of the tenth however the Rays got here back to win 3-2.
