(Newser) – Nine pitchers can now say they've thrown no-hitters this year, and six of them joined the club in one game last night. A half-dozen pitchers for the Seattle Mariners tied a league record by combining on a 1-0 win over the Dodgers, reports the Post-Intelligencer. Kevin Millwood threw the first six innings but had to leave with a groin injury. Relievers Charlie Furbush, Stephen Pryor, Lucas Luetge, Brandon League, and Tom Wilhelmsen took over. As Jim Caple of ESPN notes, the fact that it was a no-hitter didn't immediately register with Wilhelmsen after the final out.
