Reds right-hander Homer Bailey tossed a no-hitter on September 28 against the Pirates. Only 11 days later, he’s been almost equally as dominant.
And on a much grander stage.
Bailey carried a no-no into the sixth inning of this NLDS Game 3 against the Giants and has used just 77 pitches through those six frames despite fanning nine San Francisco batters. The only run that has been scored against him to this point came on a sacrifice fly in the third inning, following a walk and a hit-by-pitch.
Bailey found a groove near the end of the 2012 regular season, posting a superb 1.85 ERA and 48/9 K/BB ratio over his final 48 2/3 innings (seven starts). That run of success continues as the Reds look to knock out out the Giants and advance to the NLCS. You can follow along live over at CSNBayArea.com.
