Reid Detmers Throws No-Hitter Against Rays

In only his eleventh profession start within the majors, the Angels rookie left-hander Reid Detmers threw a no-hitter Tuesday, ending an outlandish blowout on a historical note.

In an era being defined by strikeouts, Detmers, 22, didn’t exactly blow away the competition. He had only two strikeouts and one walk, needing only 108 pitches to get 27 outs.

Before Detmers took the mound in the highest of the ninth inning at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Calif., the sport had taken a ridiculous turn with the Angels offense teeing off against Brett Phillips, an outfielder who was brought in to pitch in hopes of preserving the Rays’ bullpen.

Mike Trout hit a 421-foot homer against Phillips and Anthony Rendon, a right-handed hitter who stepped as much as the plate left-handed, hit a 411-foot shot that stretched the rating to 12-0. In between them, Shohei Ohtani had doubled off the wall, narrowly missing having back-to-back-to-back home runs.

It was by far the longest outing of Detmers’s profession. He hadn’t pitched greater than six innings or thrown greater than 97 pitches in a giant league game before Tuesday.

With the Angels leading by 8-0, Detmers walked Taylor Partitions to start out the sixth inning then induced a double play from Kevin Kiermaier two batters later. From that time forward, Phillips was the Rays’ only base runner when he reached on an error within the seventh.

It was the twelfth no-hitter in Angels franchise history and the second of the 2022 season. Five Mets pitchers blanked the Phillies on April 29. Last season, pitchers threw nine no-hitters, breaking the single-season record for no-hitters which had been set in 1884.
