Angels lefty Reid Detmers is on a six-hitter record against the Rays.


Anaheim, CA (AP) — Los Angeles Angels rookie Reed Detmus took a no-hitter in seven innings against the Tampa Bay Rays and is a bid that survived a 7-inning line error call.

The 22-year-old threw 83 pitches and two strikeouts on Tuesday night. The Angels lead 8-0.

Brett Phillips took one out in the 7th when first baseman Jared Walsh hit Phillips on the ground with a ball to the right. The crowd cheered and Walsh applauded when he showed the videoboard that the official scorer had declared an error.

Harold Ramirez hit a fly ball into the center left warning track before catching it to Brandon Marsh and Arozarena flew into the center to finish the inning.

Detmers retired the first 15 batters before Taylor Walls took a leadoff walk in the sixth. Anthony Rendon made a great jump to block Vidal Bruján’s line drive and Kevin Kiermaier landed in a double play to finish the inning.

Detmers showed great defensive play in the fifth inning when Randy Arozarena quickly caught a ground ball in the center.

Five New York Mets pitchers aim for the second no-hitter this season after five pitchers of the New York Mets scored one in a game against the Philadelphia Phillies on April 29. Last season, he had a record nine no-hitters in all majors.

Detmers is off to the start of his 11th career. He was selected 10th overall in the 2020 Draft by the University of Louisville and made his big league debut last year.

Detmers came into the game with a 2-4 career mark and a 6.33 ERA. He posted a 1-1 draw with a 5.32 ERA in his first five starts this season.

This is the first time Detmouth has conceded seven innings in a game. His previous career best was six innings against Houston last season.

The Angels supported Detmers with 13 hits, including home runs from Mike Trout and Chad Wallach.

The Angels’ last no-hitter was on July 12, 2019. Taylor Cole and Felix Pena scored a goal against the Seattle Mariners in the team’s first home game after starting pitcher Tyler Skacks died.
