No-Hitter Bailey: Homer's is First of 2013 MLB Season

The UEFL on Tuesday watched Homer Bailey throw the first no-hitter of the 2013 MLB season, as called by home plate umpire Adrian Johnson with Brian O'Nora (1B), Fieldin Culbreth (2B) and Bill Welke (3B).

Tuesday marked Johnson's second plate no-hitter (first: June 25, 2010; Edwin Jackson) and the first MLB no-no since Bailey's September 28, 2012 performance (Ed Hickox presiding).

With 52 callable pitches, including 35 balls and 17 called strikes, here is how Johnson called Bailey's no-no:

Balls: 33 called balls outside of strike zone / 2 called balls within strike zone = 33/35 = 94.3% Accuracy.
Strikes: 14 called strikes inside strike zone / 3 called strikes outside strike zone = 14/17 = <90.0% Accuracy.
Total Raw Accuracy Score = 47/52 = 90.4% Accuracy (+1 in favor of CIN/Bailey)
Wrap: San Francisco Giants vs. Cincinnati Reds, 7/2/13 (Reds defeat Giants, 3-0; Bailey: 9 IP, 0 H, 1 BB)

Saw the last couple of innings. Adrian had a couple of close pitches that he called balls that were just outside. He did did not act like an announcer or fan .He acted like an umpire. Great job.
