Video: Homer Bailey finishes off no-hitter with perfect ninth inning

Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Homer Bailey made history Tuesday night, as he notched the 280th no-hitter in Major League Baseball history against the San Francisco Giants.

Homer BaileyIt was also Bailey’s second no-no, and oddly enough the 27-year-old also threw baseball’s last no-hitter back on September 28, 2012. So, he’s making quite a habit of holding opponents hitless.

Anyone who watched the game will tell you just how dominant Bailey was. In his nine innings of work he struck out nine Giants while allowing just one walk.

Bailey’s fastball was still hitting the upper-90s late into the game, and the game’s final pitch came in at 97 miles per hour. That’s simply incredible.

With the 3-0 win, Bailey improved to 5-6 on the season and lowered his ERA to 3.57.
