In her 8,206. Playing as a franchise, the San Diego Padres eventually joined the no-hitter club when Joe Musgrove, an off-season right-handed player, thoroughly dominated Texas Rangers 3-0 on Friday.
The 28-year-old Musgrove was masterful, throwing 112 places (77 for strikes) and hitting 10, with Joey Gallo being the only base runner for Texas to be hit by a place with two outs in the fourth inning.
The padres had been hooked the last franchise to throw a no-hitter since the Mets got one on June 1st, 2012. Musgrove’s masterpiece was the 306th official no-hitter in Major League history.
During a busy off-season, the Padres acquired Musgrove from the Pittsburgh Pirates as part of a three-team deal that gave the Mets Joey Lucchesi and the Pirates four minor leaguers. Musgrove started the season with a career record of 29:38, but he had finished the 2020 season strong, beating a total of 21 batters in his last two starts. In total, he has thrown 31 consecutive goalless innings in his last three starts for the Pirates and his first two starts with the Padres.
