D-backs’ Tyler Gilbert throws franchise’s 1st no-hitter since 2010

Aug 14, 2021, 7:56 PM | Updated: Aug 16, 2021, 1:02 pm

Tyler Gilbert threw a no-hitter in his first career start for the Arizona Diamondbacks and it was nothing but spectacular in a 7-0 win over the San Diego Padres.

In nine innings pitched, Gilbert only walked three batters, adding five strikeouts to his total. He had only appeared in three games previous to Saturday’s start.

This is the first no-hitter in the Diamondbacks history since June 25, 2010 when Edwin Jackson threw 149 pitches in a no-hitter against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Gilbert, a Southern California product, was drafted in the sixth round by the Philadelphia Phillies in the 2015 MLB Draft. He joined the D-backs’ Triple-A affiliate, Reno Aces, this year and was called up by the organization on Aug. 3 of this season.

Gilbert became just the fourth ever pitcher in MLB history to throw a no-hitter in his first career start. He was announced as the starter two days before the start on Thursday.

The D-backs will go for the four game sweep Sunday at 1:10 p.m.
