Tyler Alexander flirts with a no-hitter as Tigers blitz Orioles, 11-0

Baltimore, Md. — The somewhat surprising hiring of Scott Harris as president of baseball operations wasn’t the one plot twist Monday night time.

Tyler Alexander may’ve bent a plot line or two himself. 

The Tigers had been 1-12 in his begins this season and his previous couple of had been an absolute grind. He’d been tagged for 19 earned runs in 17 innings, yielding seven house runs and a .760 slugging proportion in his final 4 begins.

The Orioles noticed a very other model of this veteran left-hander.

Throwing his four-seamer with precision and shifting his cutter and changeup to other aspects of the plate, Alexander took a no-hitter into the 7th inning within the Tigers’ 11-0 romp.

“I really thought Todd was going to to it,” rookie Ryan Kreidler stated, the usage of Alexander’s nickname. “I’ve never been part of a no-hitter before. We had a combined no-hitter one year in the minors but never a solo no-hitter. I was pretty nervous, to be honest.”

Kreidler made one in all 3 sterling performs in the back of Alexander. In the 6th inning, he made a sliding backhand stab of a ball hit down the road, were given up rapid and made a sturdy throw around the diamond that Spencer Torkelson scooped up to start with base.
