Millwood and friends tie an MLB record

Mariners’ six-pack of pitchers no-hit the L.A. Dodgers in Seattle
Kevin Millwood pitched six no-hit innings before leaving with a groin injury, and a handful of Mariners’ relievers continued to hold the Los Angeles Dodgers in check Friday night in Seattle. The 10th combined no-hitter in major league history tied the record with six pitchers used.
Charlie Furbush followed Kevin Millwood onto the mound in the seventh inning Friday night in Seattle.
Stephen Pryor relieved Charlie Furbush, who assumed control of Kevin Millwood’s no-hitter in the seventh inning when Millwood left with injury.
Lucas Luetge relieved Stephen Pryor, then gave way to maligned ex-closer Brandon League in the eighth inning.
Brandon League rediscovered his out pitch – a biting slider – and pitched out of a major jam in the eighth inning Friday night in Seattle.
New closer Tom Wilhelmsen closed out the Mariners’ no-hitter, then celebrated with catcher Jesus Montero, the only part of the battery remained constant throughout Friday’s 1-0 victory in Seattle. “It was one of my dreams. It was amazing, an amazing feeling,” Montero said.
