Congratulations to Seattle Mariners Hisashi Iwakuma for his no hitter vs the Baltimore Orioles.Iwakuma became the second Japanese pitcher to throw a no-hitter in the U.S. major leagues. Hideo Nomo, who’d set the standard for Japanese pitchers when he arrived in 1995, threw two no-hitters before retiring in 2008.
“He was unbelievable today,” Kyle Seager, the Mariners’ third baseman, told reporters in Seattle. “He was just dominant. Routine ground balls, popups, I mean, he was just phenomenal.”
It couldn’t happen to a better guy,” said Seager
I was aware of [the no-hitter] obviously,” he said, “but I kind of felt it real deep in my heart in the ninth inning.”
