Cincinnati left-handed Wade Miley threw the fourth no-hitter of the young baseball season on Friday and led the Reds to a 3-0 win over hosts Cleveland Indians.
Miley (4-2) hit eight and went one. The 34-year-old veteran took just eight pitches to navigate the ninth inning and threw 114 for the game.
