Watch A's Pitcher Mike Fiers Finish No-hitter With Strikeout Vs. Reds

The A's only needed to wait one year and 16 days between no-hitters. 

Just over a year after Sean Manaea's perfect game, A's starter Mike Fiers pitched a no-hitter in Tuesday's 2-0 win over the Cincinnati Reds. Fiers threw 131 pitches, and allowed just three baserunners (one error, two walks) over nine shutout innings at the Oakland Coliseum.

Issues with the left-field lights delayed Fiers' start by 98 minutes, but the 33-year-old finished off his second career no-hitter at 11:10 p.m. PT when he struck out Reds third baseman Eugenio Suarez swinging. 

Fiers, then with the Astros, no-hit the Los Angeles Dodgers on Aug. 21, 2015. On that day, he also allowed three baserunners (three walks) on 130-plus pitches (134, to be exact) in a home game against an interleague opponent. 

The last batter he faced that day? Third baseman Justin Turner. The final out? A swinging strikeout. 

But it doesn't end there. 

Whether that's destiny or merely a series cosmic coincidences, not even a light delay could get in Fiers' way Tuesday.
