Milwaukee Brewers ace Corbin Burnes and closer Josh Hader combined to throw a no-hitter against the Cleveland Indians on Saturday night, marking the record-breaking ninth no-hitter of the Major League Baseball season.
The previous record of eight no-hitters was set in 1884, the first year that overhand pitching was allowed.
Burnes, 26, had a perfect game through six innings before issuing a leadoff walk to Myles Straw in the seventh. He threw 115 pitches and finished with 14 strikeouts and one walk, before Hader closed out the ninth.
A first-time All-Star this season, Burnes tied the major league record with 10 consecutive strikeouts in a game against the Chicago Cubs on Aug. 11.
Burnes and Hader combined for just the second no-hitter in Brewers history; Juan Nieves threw the first in 2012.
Saturday marked the third time this season that the Indians have been on the wrong end of a no-hitter. The others were achieved by Chicago White Sox lefty Carlos Rodon on April 14 and Cincinnati Reds lefty Wade Miley on May 7.
