Edinson Volquez pitches the first no-hitter of 2017
Fun fact #23, Edinson pitched the 13th ever Maddux no-hitter, throwing only 98 pitches. Fun fact #689.5, Mister Volquez injured his foot pretty badly in the first inning and was hobbling around on an injured foot the whole game. Final fact, he seemed to be getting stronger as the game went on and in the end struck out the last three batters swinging.
