Late-night history: Mariners no-hit Dodgers with six pitchers

While you slept late Friday night, Seattle starter Kevin Millwood had a no-hitter against the Dodgers at Safeco Field through six innings. But when he came out for the seventh, he felt a tightness in his groin muscle that prevented him from pushing off the rubber.

Millwood summoned manager Eric Wedge and was done for the night. But the no-hitter lived as relievers Charlie Furbush, Stephen Pryor, Lucas Luetge, Brandon League and Tom Wilhelmsen then pitched the final three innings and made it stand up for a 1-0 victory.

It was the 10th combined no-hitter in history and tied the record for the most pitchers used, set by the Astros in 2003 at Yankee Stadium. At 22, catcher Jesus Montero became the youngest player to catch a no-no since 1971.

Pretty stunning all in all when you consider the Dodgers entered the game with the best record in baseball. Here's the final out:
