The Angels 22-Year-Old Lefty Reid Detmers Just Threw the First (Solo) No-Hitter of the Year

Baseball Is Fun

Angels left-hander Reid Detmers made history tonight, tossing the first (solo) no-hitter of the 2022 MLB season (and 12th in Angels franchise history). His final line: 9.0 IP, 1BB, 2Ks. Yeah, just two strikeouts! Crazy.

Here’s a look at the final out and ensuing celebration!

That throw was a little loopy for my liking. I’d have been sweating each millisecond before it hit the glove.

But let’s zoom back in on Detmers, who was drafted less than two years ago(!) as the tenth overall pick in the 2020 MLB Draft. This was just his 11th start in MLB. DUDE!

Detmers becomes the youngest pitcher to throw a no-hitter since Anibal Sanchez back in 2006.

Oh, and in the same game, Anthony Rendon hit a home run … as a lefty.
