SI:AM | First Solo No-Hitter of the Season by a Rookie

Even though Justin Verlander and Nestor Cortes Jr. have both come close to no-hitters so far this season, no one has been able to pull off the feat that Angels rookie Reid Detmers accomplished last night against the Rays.

A no-hitter by Detmers was the first this season. Second no-hitter of the season, following a five-pitcher effort by the Mets on April 29, and 12th in Angels franchise history, respectively.

"It's something I've wanted to do since I was a child," he explained. "I never expected it to happen. I'm at a loss. I doubt I'll remember this in the morning.

All 27 outs can be seen here, as well as the entire ninth inning and all 27 outs of the previous inning.

Detmers walked the first batter he faced in the sixth inning, but he was otherwise perfect through five innings.

In the seventh inning, a ground ball to first base posed the greatest threat to the no-hitter.

Brett Phillips was able to score as first baseman Jared Walsh of the Angels kicked the ball out of the park.
