Final Update: Rays lost the combined no-no in the 10th, but still won the game off of a walk-off home run by Kevin Kiermaier.

10th inning update: Matt Wisler takes the mound for the Rays as they head to extra innings. Wisler gives up an RBI triple to the first batter he faces and the no-hitter is no more.

Ninth inning update: Kittredge is back on the mound for the Rays in the ninth. The score is still 0-0 at this point. He did not give up a hit and the no-hitter lives with the Rays needing a run.

Eighth inning update: Andrew Kittredge takes the mound in the eighth inning and got three outs. No-hitter is still alive heading to the ninth inning.

The Tampa Bay Rays went with a “Johnny-Whole-Staff” approach to Saturday’s game against the Boston Red Sox and it is working. The combination of J.P. Feyereisen, Javy Guerra, Jeffrey Springs, Jason Adam and Ryan Thompson have a combined no-hitter through seven innings.

Feyereisen got the start and pitched two innings while striking out two. Guerra was the first out of the pen and recorded two outs while walking one. Springs relieved him and pitched two innings while walking two and striking out two. Adam got four outs while walking two and striking out one. Thompson was the most recent out of the pen pitching a hitless seventh inning.

The last MLB no-hitter came in September of 2021 as Corbin Burnes and Josh Hader of the Milwaukee Brewers combined for a no-hitter against the Cleveland then-Indians. Tampa Bay has one no-hitter in franchise history when Matt Garza no-hit the Detroit Tigers in July of 2010.
