Blog Photo - Homer Bailey pitches a no hitter against the PiratesIn what appears to be truly the year of the pitcher, Homer Bailey has added his name to the rather extensive list of pitchers who have thrown a no hitter in 2012.

Bailey needed 115 pitches to shut down the Pirates, giving the Reds a 1-0 victory and the franchise's first no-no since Tom Browning did it in 1988.

Bailey's no-hitter is the 7th in the MLB this year, the most since 1991, which also featured 7.

The funniest part about this one is that it came against the Pirates, who were once serious contenders in the NL Central. Now, the Reds have run away with the division, and the Pirates lost their 81st game tonight, ensuring that they will finish their 20th straight season without a winning record.

Congrats to Homer Bailey, and better luck next time to the Pirates. Enjoy that draft pick.
