Angels rookie Reid Detmers pitches first solo no-hitter of the season in blowout win over Rays

Reid Detmers needed just 11 starts to make history with the Los Angeles Angels.

Detmers threw a no-hitter on Tuesday night while leading the Angels to a blowout 12-0 win over the Tampa Bay Rays in Anaheim. It’s the first solo no-hitter of the MLB season and the second overall, after a combined no-hitter by the New York Mets.

Detmers, who the Angels won with Louisville’s No. 10 pick in the 2020 draft, had never pitched more than six innings in a single game before Tuesday night. The 22-year-old recorded the no-hitter on 108 pitches with two strikeouts and a walk.

Detmers now holds the 10th individual no-hitter in franchise history, and the first since the team’s combined no-hitter on July 12, 2019 — the Angels’ first since the death of pitcher Tyler Skaggs.

The Angels had no problem rolling the Rays, which was perhaps best exemplified by Anthony Rendon’s eighth-inning homer. He took to the plate left-handed for the first time in his career and returned with a two-run homer.

The Angels have now won three straight, including Monday night’s 11-3 win over the Rays.
