Combo special: Mariners fire no-no vs. Dodgers

SEATTLE — Kevin Millwood saw his bid for a second no-hitter end after six innings due to a mild right groin strain, but five relievers picked up the torch as the Mariners combined to throw a no-hitter in a 1-0 win over the Dodgers on Friday night.

Millwood breezed through the first six frames in front of 22,028. Three innings from etching his name in the records books again, Millwood exited after throwing just one warm-up pitch prior to the seventh.

Charlie Furbush, Stephen Pryor, Lucas Luetge, Brandon League and Tom Wilhelmsen kept the no-hitter intact. It is the 10th combined no-hitter in Major League history and first since the Astros did it in 2003.

Chicago White Sox Pitcher Pitches Perfect Game

SEATTLE — There are good games, and there are great games. Then there are the perfect ones that stick with you for the rest of your life.

Philip Humber will never forget what he accomplished Saturday afternoon. What started with a harmless ground-ball out turned into another out, which turned into another, and another, and another. Twenty-seven outs later, Humber had the 4-0 win over the Mariners. More importantly, he had a perfect game, and his place in the record books.

“I’m thankful — the team played awesome,” said Humber, a look of half-disbelief spread across his face. “The first thing you want to do is get a win, and it was nice to have that last run there, have that four-run lead going into the ninth.

“[Catcher] A.J. [Pierzynski] did a great job, couple of great plays in outfield and just awesome. I don’t even know what to say. I don’t know what Phil Humber is doing in this list. No idea what my name is doing there, but thankful it’s there.”
