The Boston Red Sox did it to the then-Cleveland Indians in 1992, the New York Yankees did it against the Chicago White Sox in 1990, the Baltimore Orioles did it against the Detroit Tigers in 1967 and the then-Houston Colt .45s did it against the Reds in 1964.Greene’s 118 pitches were the most any pitcher has thrown this season. He was the first Reds rookie to take a no-hitter through seven innings since Travis Wood had a perfect game going into the ninth in 2010, according to MLB.com.
