Major League Baseball has produced its fair share of outstanding pitching performances in recent days.
Last week, Yankees pitcher Domingo Germán delivered an epic perfect game in a win over the A’s. On Saturday, a trio of Detroit Tigers pitchers combined for a no-hitter in a 2-0 win over the Toronto Blue Jays.
Matt Manning, Jason Foley and Alex Lange pitched Saturday’s game, which marked the franchise’s first no-hitter since Spencer Turnbull accomplished the feat in 2021.

It marked the ninth time in franchise history that Detroit held an opposing team hitless. But it was the first combined no-hitter thrown by the Tigers.
«Man, my goodness,» Lange said in an on-field interview with Bally Sports. «What about that?»

Manning started the game and pitched 6⅔ innings before being pulled after walking a batter in the seventh inning. Relief pitcher Jason Foley then entered the game and retired four straight batters.
Lange entered the game in the ninth inning and got three outs to close out the game, earning his 13th save of the season.
Saturday’s game was the 20th combined no-hitter in MLB history. The Houston Astros threw a combined no-hitter during the 2022 World Series.
«I feel good now,» Manning told Bally Sports Detroit. «Not three guys I’d rather do it with.
«Something special tonight. It was amazing.»
Saturday’s victory was the 39th of the season for the Tigers, and the team remains five games behind the AL Central-leading Cleveland Guardians.

«Just execution from the get go,» catcher Eric Haase told Bally Sports Detroit. «Keep guys uncomfortable… Right around sixth, I started to count a little bit.»
