Baltimore starting pitcher and former West Virginia Mountaineer made history Tuesday afternoon, throwing the first individual no-hitter for the Orioles since 1969.
The moment that will live in Orioles lore.

Means allowed just one baserunner against the Seattle Mariners during Tuesday’s 6-0 Baltimore victory. The lone Seattle base-runner came via a third-strike wild pitch in the third inning and was eventually thrown out stealing. Means struck out a season-high 12 hitters and faced the minimum 27 batters.
The last Oriole pitcher to throw an individual no-hitter was hall of famer Jim Palmer against the Oakland Athletics on Aug. 13, 1969. With the win, Means moved to 4-0 on the year and lowered his season ERA to just 1.37.
Means is in his third season with Baltimore after being selected in the 11th round of the 2014 MLB Draft. Means had a 3.24 career ERA across 141.2 innings in two seasons at WVU in 2013-14. He spent five seasons in the minors before making his major league debut in 2018.
