Former Louisville standout Reid Detmers achieved one of the rare feats in baseball, throwing the 316th no-hitter in MLB history on Tuesday night. He was relatively efficient and showed why he’s one of the top prospects in all of baseball.

The Los Angeles Angels (21-11) cruised to a 12-0 victory over Tampa (18-13) as Detmers pitched a complete game no-hitter in 108 pitches, allowing just one walk and throwing two strikeouts. The no-hitter is the 12th in franchise history, and second this season. The New York Mets completed a combined no-hitter with five pitchers on April 29th to achieve the first no-hitter of the 2022 season.
What a moment!

The outing was by far the best in Detmers’ brief career in the majors. The complete game marked a season-long in innings pitched for Detmers, and was the first shutout performance of his major league career. Detmers currently holds a 2-1 record with a 3.77 ERA and 0.5 WAR in six starts as of May 10th.
