Justin Verlander tosses 3rd career no-hitter

Justin Verlander Astros

No Blue Jays batter reached base after Verlander issued a first-inning walk to Cavan Biggio.

On Sunday, with his seventh strikeout of the game, Houston Astros ace Justin Verlander accumulated 250 strikeouts on the season, putting him in rare territory.

Verlander knew his place in history was special. It was Verlander's second consecutive no-hitter at Rogers Centre, making him the first pitcher in Major League Baseball history with multiple no-hitters on the road against the same opponent.

Pitchers who have thrown more no-hitters than Verlander: Nolan Ryan (7) and Sandy Koufax (4). "It's some of the guys I idolize". His other no-no was in 2007 for the Tigers against Milwaukee.

September 1, 2019 - Houston Astros at Toronto Blue Jays May 7, 2011 - Detroit Tigers at Toronto Blue Jays June 12, 2007 - Detroit Tigers vs.

Verlander was as close to flawless as you can get without being ideal.

Verlander needed some help from his offense as the game was tied 0-0 in the ninth. He struck out 14 and allowed no runs in a 2-0 win.

It's the 13th no-hitter in franchise history for the Astros and the second since the trade deadline, following the combined four-pitcher no-hitter the team tossed in August.
