It was just the 10th combined no-hit game in Major League Baseball history and was the fourth no-hitter already of this still young 2012 season.
Veteran right-hander Kevin Millwood started for the M’s and pitched six no-hit innings at Safeco Field before leaving the game with a right groin injury.
Millwood was followed up by Charlie Furbush, Stephen Pryor, Lucas Luetge, Brandon League and, finally, Tom Wilhelmsen, who finished off the Dodgers in the ninth.
Still scoreless after six innings, Millwood had struck out six and given up just a single walk. “But while warming up for the seventh,” according to the Associated Press, “he felt a twinge in his groin and was pulled from the game.”
