CINCINNATI (AP) — Homer Bailey has thrown his second no-hitter in 10 months and the first in the majors this season, pitching the Cincinnati Reds to a 3-0 victory over the slumping San Francisco Giants on Tuesday night.

Bailey (5-6) became the third Reds pitcher with more than one no-hitter, joining Jim Maloney and Johnny Vander Meer — still the only big leaguer to toss two in a row. Bailey beat the Pirates 1-0 in Pittsburgh last Sept. 28 and got another 17 starts later.

The right-hander walked Gregor Blanco to lead off the seventh, the only Giants batter to reach base. First baseman Joey Votto threw out Blanco as he tried to reach third on a grounder.

With 27,509 fans on their feet chanting “Homer! Homer!” Bailey finished it off by getting Brandon Crawford on a high comebacker, striking out Tony Abreu and getting Blanco on a grounder to third.
