MLB recap in the American on May 18, 2021: Spencer Turnbull scores 5th no-no of the season

Detroit Tigers pitcher Spencer Turnbull had a scoreless game against the Seattle Mariners in a 5-0 win on Tuesday night.

This is the fifth no-no of the season. This is the highest total before May 19 since 1917.

Turnbull (3-2), who set an unenviable record of 17 losses in the Majors two years ago, had not passed the seventh inning in his last 49 starts.

He is the first Tigers pitcher since Justin Verlander on May 7, 2011 (in Toronto) to pitch a scoreless game and the eighth in team history.

The 28-year-old right-hander received some help from his teammates, including a fine defensive play from third baseman Jeimer Candelario in the seventh inning, before removing Mitch Haniger in the ninth to close the debate and confirm his feat.

He made 117 shots in total, including 77 for catches.

Other scoring and hitting-less games in the campaign include San Diego right-hander Joe Musgrove in Texas on April 9, White Sox left-hander Carlos Rodón against Cleveland on 14, John Means from Baltimore to Seattle on May 5, and left-hander. of Cincinnati Wade Miley vs. Cleveland on May 7.

Two circuits of Zunino in the victory

Mike Zunino hit two home runs and the Tampa Bay Rays won a fifth straight game, beating the Baltimore Orioles 13-6.

Brett Phillips and Austin Meadows hit three-run homers in the second inning, while Ji-Man Choi added a long ball late in the game for the Rays, who are 24-19 this season.

The Orioles have lost 8 of their last 10 games and have won just 6 of their 16 home games.

The Rays took advantage of the largesse of Matt Harvey (3-4) in the second inning. They started the set with back-to-back singles, and one out later Phillips sent Harvey’s fastball to right field for his second home run.

Afterwards, Willy Adames scored a double towards third, then Randy Arozarena went to first base with an infield single. Meadows then slammed his ninth home run of the season to take the score to 6-0.

Harvey conceded six runs on seven hits in an inning and two-thirds. It was his shortest start since September 6, while wearing the Kansas City Royals’ colors.

Zunino had his eighth career-long homer game with two two-run homers. He sent his ball into the stands in third and fifth.

Choi added two runs for the Rays with a homerun in the eighth. It was his first homer of the season, having spent the first 40 games of the campaign on the injured list with a knee injury.

Rays starter Luis PatiIno was kicked out of the game amid a three-point run from the Orioles in the fourth. He stayed at the mound for three and a third innings, conceding four runs on six hits. He had six strikeouts.

Andrew Kittredge (4-0) allowed no runs in one set and two-thirds in relief for the Rays.

Cedric Mullins of the Orioles hit a hit in an 11 straight game with a third inning single.

Royals shut out when Yelich returns to the lineup

Earlier, the Milwaukee Brewers flagged 2-0 against the Kansas Royals CIty.

Andrew Benintendi produced the tie-breaking run with two strikeouts in the eighth inning to spoil a great start from Brandon Woodruff on the mound.

Jake Brentz (1-0) earned his first career victory, while Josh Staumont managed his fourth save.

Brewers star Christian Yelich was taken off the injury list and was in training for just the second time in five weeks for the start of the two-game series.

He was 0 in 4 tonight with three strikeouts.

Yelich played nine games early in the season before retiring on April 11 due to stiff lower back. He made his first comeback on May 3 in Philadelphia, but only passed one game time before returning to the injured roster.

Brewers manager Craig Counsell revealed that Yelich went through various training protocols during his absence and his back condition improved.

In three AAA fitness games in Nashville, Yelich hasn’t had any hits in five at-bat. He also received two walks.

Year-to-date Yelich is batting .353 but hasn’t hit a home run and produced just one run in 41 batting appearances.
