MLB Moved by Angels' No-Hitter As Players Pay Tribute to Tyler Skaggs

In their first home game since pitcher Tyler Skaggs' passing on July 1, the Angels threw a combined no-hitter in Anaheim vs. Seattle. It was the first combined no-no in California since Orioles at A’s on July 13, 1991, the same day Skaggs was born, according to STATS.

Before his teammates, Taylor Cole and Felix Pena, took the mound–both wearing Skaggs' No. 45 along with the rest of their team–the former Los Angeles ace’s mom threw a perfect strike on the first pitch of the game.

Mike Trout then blasted a first-pitch fastball for a home run, launching the ball a fitting 454 feet over the centerfield fence.
