Today Homer Bailey and the Cincinnati Reds were taking on Tim Lincecum and the defending World Champion San Francisco Giants.

The Reds looked good right from the get-go. In the 1st inning, Shin-Soo Choo lead things off with a double, later on Votto was able to bring him home with a sac fly and make the score 1-0. That’s all the Reds needed.

Homer Bailey was in a groove all night long, he said he felt like he was in control of the game starting in the 7th inning. Probably partly in-thanks to the insurance runs Brandon Phillips gave him when he hit a two-run homer in the 6th.

In the 8th and 9th innings, Homer Bailey was well-aware that he had a no-no intact, so he said to himself “why the hell not?”.

Homer got the first two outs of the 9th inning pretty easily, then came Gregor Blanco. The count was 1-2. He grounded it to third, Frazier fielded it cleanly, and threw on the Votto covering first to end it. A no-hitter for Homer Bailey.

This is Homer’s second career no hitter, he threw one last year in Pittsburgh.
