More than 10,000 fans at Huntington Park Wednesday night witnessed a baseball rarity. Tyler Cloyd of the Clippers tossed a no-hitter, the first ever in the six-year history of the Clippers downtown ball park.
Cloyd faced the minimum 27 batters. He retired the first 24 in a row but hit the lead-of batter in the 9th. Cloyd recovered by erasing the runner on a double-play and then got the final out on a liner to second. It's the seventh no-hitter in Clipper history.
Courtesy of the Clippers, here's video of the final out and of Cloyd's on-field interview following the game.
