Fiers Throws Late Night No-Hitter, A’s Win 2-0 Over Reds

A Reds pitcher hasn't thrown a no-hitter since Bailey in 2013 (vs. the Giants) and 2012 (vs. the Pirates).

Oakland and Cincinnati will meet at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum on Wednesday. Sadly, just shy of 12,000 people were there to see Fiers' stunning performance in person, so we're here to help with that.

More importantly, Fiers received two brilliant defensive plays behind him.

A's President Dave Kaval walked out to left field at one point and led a meeting behind home plate that included two umpires, general manager David Forst, Oakland manager Bob Melvin and Reds manager David Bell. He then breezed through the final two innings, following up his 2015 gem for Houston against the Dodgers with a 131-pitch masterpiece to become the 35th pitcher with multiple no-hitters in his career.

"It's pretty cool. I'm just grateful to be here", said Fiers.

A's catcher Josh Phegley neatly blocked the last pitch and tagged Suarez to make it official.

USA seizes North Korean cargo ship for violating sanctions
Payments for maintenance, equipment, and improvements of the Wise Honest were made in USA dollars through unwitting U.S. banks. Attorney Geoffrey Berman said this is the first time a North Korean cargo ship was seized for violating worldwide sanctions.

The only other Reds batter to reach was Winker, who got aboard on an error by Gold Glove third baseman Matt Chapman in the fourth.

Coincidentally, the series began with the most recent A's pitcher to throw a no-hitter - before Tuesday - making a highly anticipated bullpen session.

The start of Tuesday's game was delayed 98 minutes because of a light malfunction at the ballpark. A bank of lights above the upper deck in left field was only partially lit.

Jurickson Profar drove in both runs for the Athletics with an RBI double in the second and a solo home run in the seventh.

The A's scored in the second against Tyler Mahle (1-6) when Stephen Piscotty raced home on Profar's double into the right field corner.

Athletics Injuries: Blake Treinen: day-to-day (elbow), Sean Manaea: 60-day IL (shoulder), Daniel Gossett: 60-day IL (elbow), Marco Estrada: 10-day IL (lumbar strain), Jharel Cotton: 60-day IL (elbow), Nick Martini: 10-day IL (knee), Khris Davis: day-to-day (hip), Mark Canha: 10-day IL (wrist), Chris Herrmann: 60-day IL (knee).
