Spencer Turnbull of Detroit Tigers no-hits Seattle Mariners

Detroit Tigers pitcher Spencer Turnbull threw the fifth no-hitter of the season, blanking the Seattle Mariners in a 5-0 win on Tuesday night.

Turnbull’s gem is the first Tigers no-hitter since May 7, 2011, when Justin Verlander blanked the Toronto Blue Jays. It is the eighth no-hitter in Tigers history.

Turnbull threw 117 pitches, 77 for strikes. He struck out nine batters while walking two. In all, three runners reached base against Turnbull. Jarred Kelenic walked to lead off the fourth inning. José Marmolejos walked to lead off the ninth and then Kelenic reached on a fielder’s choice later in the inning before Turnbull struck out Mitch Haniger to complete the no-hitter.
