When Cincinnati Reds right-hander Homer Bailey threw a no-hitter Friday against the Pittsburgh Pirates, he joined an exclusive club as the seventh pitcher/group of pitchers to hurl a no-hitter or perfect game in Major League Baseball...in the 2012 season.
Bailey, who entered the game with a 3.92 ERA and 1.30 WHIP, racked up 10 strikeouts with only one walk in the Reds' 1-0 victory.
