OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Mike Fiers of the Oakland Athletics is pitching a no-hitter through eight innings against the Cincinnati Reds.

Fiers has thrown 118 pitches Tuesday night in Oakland. He has struck out five and walked two.

In 2015, Fiers pitched a no-hitter for Houston against the Los Angeles Dodgers. He threw a career-high 134 pitches in that game.

The A’s backed Fiers with two outstanding defensive plays in the sixth. Second baseman Jurickson Profar made a diving catch on Kyle Farmer’s popup into short right field, then center fielder Ramon Laureano made a leaping catch at the fence to rob Joey Votto of extra bases to end the inning.

The Athletics lead 2-0.
