Brewers’ Burnes, Hader combine for MLB record 9th no-hitter

CLEVELAND (AP) – Milwaukee ace Corbin Burnes combined with reliever Josh Hader to pitch baseball’s record ninth no-hitter this season, breaking a mark set when pitchers began throwing overhand in 1884 as the Brewers beat the Cleveland Indians 3-0. Burnes struck out 14 with 115 pitches over eight innings, taking a perfect game into the seventh while overpowering the Indians, who were no-hit for the third time in 2021. This time is was by Burnes – who has become a Cy Young contender as the Brewers run away with the NL Central – and Hader, one of the game’s top closers.
