Houston Astros Throw No-Hitter

Aaron Sanchez was just traded to the Houston Astros this week and he has already had a huge impact as the team threw a combined no-hitter against the Seattle Mariners on Saturday Night.

Sanchez, who is having a down season, pitched the first six innings of the game. In those innings, he struck out six batters while walking two on 92 pitches. In those six innings, Sanchez only faced three over the minimum.

With Sanchez already being at 92 pitches, Will Harris came in to relieve him in the seventh inning.

Harris didn’t strike anyone out that inning, and he did walk one batter. He began the inning by inducing a Daniel Vogelbach groundout to shortstop and after walking Domingo Santana, he was able to get J.P. Crawford to ground into a double play.

In the eighth inning, new acquisition Joe Biagini took the mound for his Astros debut. He walked the second batter of the inning, but after that, he was able to get Keon Broxton looking and then get Mallex Smith to hit a ground ball to first base.

Attempting to finish off this combined no-hitter was Chris Devenski. It only took Devenski 12 pitches to finish off the ninth inning as he didn’t have to work too hard to finish off the no-hitter. He got Kyle Seager to groundout, struck out Omar Narvaez and then with two outs Vogelbach hit a fly ball to right field that Josh Reddick was able to camp under.

This is the 12th no-hitter in Houston Astros history and the second combined no-hitter.

This is the second time the Mariners have been no-hit this season.
