No runs. No hits. No errors. One walk. Six strikeouts.
And the first no-hitter in Tampa Bay Rays history.
Matt Garza reached that monument Monday at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg against the Detroit Tigers. The Rays won the ballgame 5-0 with thanks to the long-ball from the likes of Matt Joyce and Carl Crawford. Joyce hit a grand slam home run in the 6th inning, the game's first hit. Carl Crawford hit a solo shot to dead center field in the top of the ninth to pad the lead.
But the major feat for the evening was Garza's masterful work on the mound.
