CLEVELAND (AP) - Milwaukee ace Corbin Burnes combined with reliever Josh Hader to pitch baseball’s record ninth no-hitter this season, breaking a mark set when pitchers began throwing overhand in 1884 as the Brewers beat the Cleveland Indians 3-0.

Burnes struck out 14 with 115 pitches over eight innings, taking a perfect game into the seventh while overpowering the Indians, who were no-hit for the third time in 2021.

This time is was by Burnes - who has become a Cy Young contender as the Brewers run away with the NL Central - and Hader, one of the game’s top closers.
