Ho hum,

Felix Hernandez pitched the sixth no-hitter of the season. There have been 23 perfect games all-time and three this season.

This season there have also been:

  1. Three pitchers who have struck out 15 batters, the most in a game this season: Francisco Liriano, Max Scherzer, and Chris Sale.
  2. Two times this season that Adam Dunn has gone as many as two consecutive games without striking out.
  3. Three batters who have whiffed five times in a game: Bryce Harper, Cody Ross, and Chris Davis.
  4. Three batters who have grounded into three double plays in a game: Ben Zobrist, Ryan Braun, and Jason Giambi.
  5. Three teams who don’t have a pitcher who have tossed a complete game: Rockies, Cubs, and Brewers.
  6. Two batters who have drawn five walks in a game: Mike Baxter and Alex Gordon.
  7. Two batters who have driven home eight runs in a game: Nelson Cruz and Josh Hamilton.
  8. One base runner who has stolen four bases in a game: Norichika Aoki.
  9. Three times that a batter hit for the cycle: twice for Aaron Hill and once by Scott Hairston
