Tigers Trio No-Hits the Blue Jays!

It's been a tough year in the Motor City this baseball season, w/ my beloved Detroit Tigers sitting at 38-49 before Saturday's game against the visiting Blue Jays.

After being pounded around their own ballpark Friday night, 12-2 vs Toronto, the Tigers lived up to the old  "put it behind us" "baseballism," with a 2-0 win over their Canadian counterparts, making history along the way.

Three Detroit pitchers, starter 
Matt Manning, reliever Jason Foley, and closer Alex Langeno-hit the Blue Jays, the first time in Tigers history that the team had a "combined" no-no!

🐅⚾️ The feat was the 9th no-hitter in Tigers history, and, just the 20th time in big league baseball history that a combined no-hitter was pitched.

2️⃣- It must be noted that the man wearing the "tools of ignorance," catcher Eric Haase, was also the backstop that caught the last Tigers no-no, by Spencer Turnbull, on May 19, 2021, and he's the only catcher in club history to catch to no-hitters.

👀👀 Looking forward to tomorrow's Topps NOW card release to see what the No-Hitter card looks like.

Hopefully, the card is a good one, although, I'll certainly have to get one of them, regardless. 

🐅⚾️ Have a great rest of your weekend, and, of course,  Play BALL!
