Burnes, Hader toss Brewers first no-hitter since 1987

CLEVELAND — History.

Brewers ace Corbin Burnes and reliever Josh Hader have combined to throw the franchise’s first no-hitter in more than three decades — and just the second in franchise history.

Burnes hurled eight shutout innings, allowing just one walk and fanning 14 in Milwaukee’s 3-0 win over the Cleveland Indians.

The only other no-hitter in franchise history came in April 1987, when Juan Nieves became the second youngest pitcher in baseball history to throw a no-no, as well as the first Puerto Rican to throw one. That came in a 7-0 win over Baltimore.

Centerfielder Lorenzo Cain may have saved the no-no with two outs in the eighth inning when he dove to catch a ball. That was the last batter Burnes faced, before being taken out in favor of Josh Hader.
