Morgantown, West Virginia – Former West Virginia Mountaineers pitcher John Means has done it! Means, now a starting pitcher for the Baltimore Orioles, just threw his first career no-hitter against the Seattle Mariners!
The Orioles (15-16) defeated the Seattle Mariners (17-15) 6-0 behind Means’ no-hitter! Means finished the game with 9 innings pitched, 12 strikeouts, 0 hits and 0 walks!
Means played for WVU in 2013 and 2014. In that span he started 25 games, with a 10-6 record, finishing with a 3.24 ERA and struck out 100 in 141.2 career innings.
Means, 28, is now the ace for the Orioles with a 4-0 record and a 1.41 ERA this season. Today’s no-hitter is a huge accomplishment for the former Mountaineer!
Congratulations, John! Once a Mountaineer, Always a Mountaineer! The whole state of West Virginia is so proud tonight!
