Orioles 6, Mariners 0 – John Means throws his first career No-Hitter, falls a wild pitch short of a perfect game, as he strikes out 12 & walks none over the full 9 innings. Means gets J.P. Crawford to line out to SS Ramon Urias as the Orioles dug out mobs home plate in Seattle. It’s the Orioles first No-Hitter since 1969 & the 3rd No-Hitter thrown so far this season. Pat Valaika hits a solo homer in the 7th to add to the lead & Trey Mancini drills a 3-run shot in the 9th to put the game away. Means strikes out Sam Haggerty, but the wild pitch allows him to reach, but was caught trying to steal 2nd.
