The Seattle Mariners are a Major League Baseball franchise based in Seattle, Washington. Formed in 1977, they play in the American League West division. Pitchers for the Mariners have thrown five (5) no-hitters in franchise history.[1] A no-hitter is officially recognized by Major League Baseball only when a pitcher (or pitchers) "allows no hits during the entire course of a game, which consists of at least nine innings."[2] The first perfect game in Mariners' history (a special subcategory of no-hitter in which "no batter reaches any base during the course of the game") [2][3] was thrown on August 15, 2012 by Félix Hernández, who beat the Tampa Bay Rays in a 1-0 victory with 12 strikeouts.[4] The Félix Hernández perfect game and Hisashi Iwakuma no hitter both took place as Wednesday matinee games that were "Mariners Camp Day" where the team hosted local summer camps.
