Iwakuma No-Hitter – Facts & Figures

IwakumaNoNo

Hisashi Iwakuma threw the 5th no-hitter (4th individual) in Seattle Mariners history in a 3-0 win over the Baltimore Orioles on August 12, 2015 at Safeco Field. Here are some details on the historic pitching performance:

**The No-Hitter will be replayed tonight (Thursday) on ROOT Sports at 7 pm PT**

  • Was the 5th no-hitter in Seattle Mariners history, the 4th individual…all 5 of the Mariners no-hitters have come in home games, with 3 at Safeco Field (Iwakuma, Felix, combined no-no) and two at The Kingdome (Randy, Bosio).
  • Japanese No-Hitter – Became the second Japanese-born pitcher with a no-hitter in MLB history, joining Hideo Nomo: Sept. 17, 1996 at Colorado (with Dodgers) & April 4, 2001 at Baltimore (with Boston).
  • Breaking the AL Jinx – Iwakuma became the first American League pitcher to pitch a no-hitter since teammate Felix Hernandez did it on August 15, 2012…were 12 no hitters (11 individual, one combined) in the National League since then…marks the longest streak of no-hitters thrown in one league since the inception of the AL in 1901.
  • Mariners No-Hit Theme – Each of the last three no-hitters in the American League have been tossed by the Mariners, with six pitchers combining to blank the Dodgers on no hits on June 8, 2012 and Felix Hernandez tossing a perfect game vs. Tampa Bay on August 15, 2012…prior to Seattle, the last team responsible for three consecutive no-hitters in its league was the Yankees, who produced three straight no hitters in the American League from 1996 to 1999…New York’s no-hitters were tossed by Dwight Gooden (vs. Seattle on May 14, 1996), David Wells (vs. Minnesota on May 17, 1998) and David Cone (vs. Montreal on July 18, 1999).
  • The Golden Years – At age 34 years, 122 days, became the oldest AL pitcher to throw his first no-hitter since 36-year-old David Cone threw his perfect game against the Montreal Expos in 1999…also oldest pitcher to throw a no-no since Randy Johnson in 2004 (age 40)…23rd no-hitter in MLB history by a pitcher 34 years or older.
  • First Career CG – The no-hitter was Iwakuma’s first MLB complete game (88th career MLB start)…he became the 17th pitcher (since 1914) to throw a no-hitter in first career complete game (first since Philip Humber perfect game vs. Seattle 4/21/12)…records show that Iwakuma recorded 48 complete games (6 shutouts during his career in Japan, but did not throw a no-hitter).
