Kevin Millwood pitched six hitless innings Friday against the Dodgers before being forced from the game with a mild right groin strain after going to warm up for the seventh, but five relievers combined to shut L.A. down afterwards, giving Seattle its first no-hitter in 19 years.
Millwood threw just 68 pitches before his departure, putting him in great position to get the no-hitter by himself. He threw a two-hitter against the Rockies last month, giving him his first shutout since 2003.
Charlie Furbush replaced him to start the seventh and combined with Stephen Pryor, Lucas Luetge, Brandon League and Tom Wilhelmsen on the no-no. It was Seattle’s first no-hitter since Chris Bosio had one against Boston in 1993.
