Dbacks' Weaver has a no-hitter through 6 innings vs Reds

PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Luke Weaver has a no-hitter through six innings, retiring the first 17 batters he faced against the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday.

The 27-year-old Weaver had a perfect game through 5 2/3 innings Sunday but hit Alex Blandino with a pitch with two outs in the sixth. The right-hander retired Tyler Naquin on a strikeout to end the inning.

Weaver has given up a few hard-hit balls, including line drives by Joey Votto and Kyle Farmer that were snagged by shortstop Nick Ahmed. The Diamondbacks have a 7-0 lead.

Weaver has thrown 79 pitches, including 54 strikes. He's struck out seven. He's trying to bounce back from a tough 2020 season when he led the National League with nine losses and had a 6.58 ERA.
