Mariners 6-pack combines for no-hitter vs. Dodgers

Updated: June 9, 2012 12:12AM



SEATTLE — Kevin Millwood and five Seattle relievers combined on a no-hitter, the third in franchise history, and the Mariners beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 1-0 on Friday night.

The no-hitter was the fourth in the majors this season, joining gems pitched by the Angels’ Jered Weaver, the Mets’ Johan Santana and White Sox right-hander Philip Humber, who threw a perfect game at Seattle in April.

But this one was clearly the least conventional.

Millwood was cruising through six innings, giving up just one walk. But while warming up for the seventh he felt a twinge in his groin and was pulled from the game. Five relievers combined to finish the no-hitter, capped by Tom Wilhelmsen retiring Andre Ethier on a routine grounder to end it.
