Sportsman of the Week Ending 5/12/2019
For the second time in his career, he completed nine innings without a batted ball in play resulting in a batter reaching base that wasn't scored an error. In other words, he pitched a no hitter. Fiers only walked 2 batters while a third baserunner reached on an error. And he needed to keep the bases clean to protect a 2-0 lead (only 1-0 when he took the mound in the 7th). Further adding to the unusual event was that the game was delayed 90 minutes due to a malfunctions in the lights. Maybe the Reds bats fell asleep and never woke up. But really, Fiers proved he could do it on his first no hitter in 2015, and backed it up against the Reds. Mike Fiers is the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
