Corbin Burnes did more than hit the 200 strikeout milestone in Saturday’s game.
Burnes dominated the Cleveland Indians through 8 strong innings, and Josh Hader came in to record his 31st save of the season as the Crew wins 3-0 in the Brewers first no-hitter since April 15, 1987. It is the second No-Hitter in franchise history and the first combined No-Hitter in franchise history.
Burnes hit the 200 strikeout mark for the season after his 4th strikeout. He finished with 14 strikeouts in only 115 pitches. Hader added 2 more for a total of 16 between the two aces.
This was the third time the Indians gave in to a no-hitter, the first team to ever accomplish that feat. The No-Hitter is the 9th of the MLB season, breaking a mark set when pitchers began throwing overhand in 1884.
This catch from Lorenzo Cain kept the No-Hitter alive.
