Bailey throws a No-No Again!

Cincinnati Reds pitcher Homer Bailey threw the first no-hitter of the 2013 season, blanking the San Francisco Giants 3-0 tonight.   Tossing 109 pitches, Bailey struck out nine Giants and only walked one.

Gregor Blanco worked a walk leading off the seventh inning to break up the potential perfect game.

The last Reds no-hitter was thrown by Homer Bailey just last season in Pittsburgh against the Pirates on September 28th, 2012.
