2015 No-Hitter 3: Phil Cuzzi (2; Cole Hamels)

HP Umpire Phil Cuzzi called Phillies P Cole Hamels' no-hitter, the third of 2015. Cuzzi was joined for Saturday's Phillies-Cubs game by crew chief Gerry Davis (1B), Will Little (2B), and Tony Randazzo (3B). This is Cuzzi's second career no-hitter (Bud Smith; September 3, 2001).

Saturday's is the first MLB no-hitter since June 20, 2015 (Mike Muchlinski; Max Scherzer).

Cuzzi received 68 callable pitches from Hamels, a total of 44 balls and 24 called strikes. The look:

Balls: 42 called balls outside of strike zone / 2 called balls within strike zone = 42/44 = 95.5% Accuracy.
Strikes: 20 called strikes inside strike zone / 4 called strikes outside strike zone = 20/24 = <90.0% Accuracy.
Total Raw Accuracy Score = 63/68 = 92.6% Accuracy (+2 for Hamels).
