Cincinnati right-hander Homer Bailey threw his second career no-hitter, the first of the regular season, in the Reds' victory over the San Francisco Giants, 3-0, on Tuesday.
Bailey, whose no-hitter last season on Sept. 28 was the last to occur, struck out nine and walked one batter with 109 pitches.
Bailey (5-6) is the third Reds pitcher with more than one no-hitter. Jim Maloney and Johnny Vander Meer also accomplished the feat for Cincinnati, according to the Associated Press.
Bailey now has a 3.57 ERA with 111 strikeouts on the season.
The Reds' Shin-Soo Choo scored on a Joey Votto sacrifice fly in the first inning. Choo's hit was originally ruled a home run but was overturned by replay and he was awarded a double.
