Reid Detmers releases first no-no solo of the 2022 season

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Reid Detmers was called up to the Los Angeles Angels at the end of last season with high expectations. After 10 forgettable matches in the big league, the left-handed rookie surpassed even his own hopes on Tuesday night.

Detmers pitched the Majors’ second no-hitter this season, crossing after benefiting from a borderline miss call in the seventh inning as the Angels beat the Tampa Bay Rays 12-0.

The 22-year-old southpaw threw 108 pitches in his 11th major league game, knocking out two and walking one. He completed the 12th no-hitter in franchise history when Yandy Diaz was eliminated by shortstop Andrew Velazquez to end the game.

“Taking off the last one was the coolest part,” Detmers said. “It’s just something I’ve dreamed of since I was a kid. I never thought this would happen.”
