Joe Musgrove threw a no hitter for the Padres yesterday. It is the first no hitter this year. It is also the second complete game so far this year.
It is the first complete game in Joe Musgrove’s career (84 MLB starts)
It is the first no hitter in Padres history.
It is the first time that consecutive no hitters have been caught by the same catcher, Victor Caratini who caught the last no hitter thrown by Alec Mills for the Cubs last year. Caratini is also the first catcher to catch no hitters for two different teams.
That’s a lot of firsts for something that’s been around for what, about 160 years.
Baseball is a funny game
