Bats have officially gone invisible across MLB as there have now been five no-hitters in the first two months of the season.
Spencer Turnbull threw the latest no-hitter in MLB, as he shutout the Seattle Mariners in a 5-0 Detroit Tigers win on Tuesday night. Turnbull struck out nine and walked just two batters as part of the victory.
Turnbull’s no-hitter was the eighth in Tigers history and first since Justin Verlander in 2011.

There are now five no-hitters this season, tying the 1917 season as the most no-hitters through May 18 in any season.

The Mariners were also no-hit by John Means on May 5.

What’s odd about the no-hitter is that Turnbull said after the game that he felt “horrible” warming up before the game.
Spencer Turnbull on @BallySportsDET after the game: “Honestly, warming up in the pen before the game, I felt HORRIBLE.” Amazing how many pitchers through the years who have thrown no-no’s felt awful while warming up pregame.

He felt terrible yet ended up having great stuff. Go figure.
As for Seattle, their bats have a tendency to go completely quiet sometimes. It’s embarrassing.
