Detroit Tigers pitcher Spencer Turnbull dumped fifth in the season, dumping the Seattle Mariners at 5-0 victory Tuesday night.
The Turnbull jewel is the first tiger not to hit since May 7, 2011, when Justin Verlander cut the Toronto Blue Jays off. It is the eighth hitter in the history of tigers.
Turnbull delivered 117 shots, 77 to strikes. He hit nine strokes while walking twice. In total, three contestants made it to the base against Turnbull. Jared Kilinc led the fourth game. Jose Marmolejos marched to lead the ninth game and then Kilinic reached a player selection later in the game before Turnbull hit Mitch Hanegger to complete the non-hitting.
Earlier in the match, Haniger was the closest to getting a hit for the Mariners. Haniger hit a volleyball deep into the wall in midfield in the fourth game, and was robbed from a hit by a dive stop from third base captain Khimer Candelario who led the seventh. The ball was hit at 108 mph from Hanniger’s racket, but Candelario hit the single hopper and made a powerful throw to the first base to exit.
By entering the Tuesday night match, Turnbull had not played more than seven rounds in 49 early days.
The Turnbull jewel comes after only 10 days Cincinnati Reds’s Wade Miley no-hit Cleveland And 12 days later John Means of Baltimore Orioles does not hit sailors, Who became the second team this season to not get a hit twice, to join Cleveland.
The last time two teams were not injured twice in the same season was in 2015 (the Los Angeles Dodgers and the New York Mets).
