A's Fiers fires 2nd career no-hitter

May JohnsonMay 10, 2019

Farmer popped up into right field, and it looked like that was the end of Fiers' streak - until A's second baseman Jurickson Profar came way out for a spectacular diving catch for the second out of the inning. I'm just thankful for him to leave me in and trusting me.

"Ramon's catch he's done that once or twice".

A bank of lights in left field was only partially lit before the scheduled start of the game, leading to a delay of more than 90 minutes. Sean Manaea impressively coasted through the Boston Red Sox's loaded lineup in late April of previous year. "I told him I felt great".

The career of Mike Fiers is now defined by two nights, almost four years apart.

The second close call came in the top of the fourth inning when Reds outfielder Jesse Winker hit a chopper up the middle.

Dick Durbin: Trump 'Googly-Eyed ' By Putin's Denial of Venezuelan Involvement
Putin asked Trump to take 'steps to ease the sanctions pressure on North Korea , ' according to the embassy's readout. Trump said the two leaders were also considering a new nuclear agreement "where we make less and they make less".

The start of Tuesday's game was delayed 98 minutes because of a light malfunction at the ballpark. "You go out there wanting to go deep in the game and get the defense off the field as quick as possible". He also needed 131 pitches to complete the task, a rare workload in today's game, and just the fifth 130-pitch outing since 2015.

"I knew. I don't like when guys are like they don't know", Fiers said. Fiers jumped ahead 0-2 before throwing two balls to even the count and bring him to 130 pitches. You don't see this very often, especially anymore. Profar added a solo homer in the seventh.

Cincinnati starter Tyler Mahle gave up only three hits in six innings, with Stephen Piscotty scoring all the way from first on Profar's two-out double into the right field corner in the second inning.

The A's beat the Cincinnati Reds, 2-0, in the first of a three-game series at the Oakland Coliseum. DH Khris Davis was a late scratch because of a left hip contusion.

Reds Injuries: Alex Wood: 10-day IL (back), Scooter Gennett: 60-day IL (groin), Alex Blandino: 10-day IL (knee). Manaea threw all fastballs during a 20-pitch bullpen session, his first since shoulder surgery last September. The former A's ace won 44 games during 4 ½ seasons in the majors with Oakland before being traded to the New York Yankees.
