Throwing a no-hitter in a rookie season is as good as a soccer player scoring a hat-trick of goals in his first season. The Angels ace Reid Detmers will remember this game for his entire life. It was only the 12th no-hitter in the history of LA Angels. However, with his stunning performance from the mound, the Angels won the game 12-0 against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Taking to Twitter, a baseball fan said the Anaheim (now Angels) have magic flowing. They are a different team this season. Another fan termed Detmers’ performance as ‘unreal’.

Meanwhile, top MLB journalists heaped high praise on the Angels rookie. Morosi said that with only 62 innings in his minor league career, Detmers has thrown a no-hitter in the big league.
