    A's Fiers blanks Reds for second career no-hitter

    OAKLAND -- Mike Fiers of the Oakland Athletics pitched his second career no-hitter by shutting down the Cincinnati Reds with help from two spectacular defensive plays in a 2-0 victory Tuesday night.

    Fiers (3-3) followed up his 2015 gem against the Los Angeles Dodgers with a 131-pitch masterpiece to become the 35th pitcher with multiple no-hitters in his career. He walked two and struck out six, ending it by fanning Eugenio Suarez with a big curveball.

    It's the first time the A's have had no-hitters in back-to-back seasons, following Sean Manaea's no-no last season against the Boston Red Sox.

    With Fiers' no-hitter, five pitchers currently on MLB rosters have multiple career no-hitters: Justin Verlander, Jake Arrieta, Max Scherzer, Homer Bailey and Fiers.

    Fiers is the eighth pitcher in MLB history to throw a no-hitter with multiple teams, joining Nolan Ryan (3 teams), Cy Young (2), Randy Johnson (2), Adonis Terry (2), Jim Bunning (2), Ted Breitenstein (2) and Hideo Nomo (2).
