Time traveling: Joe Wieland’s no-hitter


While we were caught up in taking you behind the scenes of the awesome headshots at Dr Pepper Ballpark yesterday, we didn’t get a chance to celebrate the fifth anniversary of Joe Wieland’s no-hitter. The no-no was the fourth in team history and the first nine-inning, complete game, no-hitter. Aaron Goldsmith and Brian Boesch did a great job chronicling the historic event at the time on the Riders Insider Blog. Let’s travel through time, thanks to Aaron and Brian.

What makes the story all the more interesting is that Wieland was traded to the Padres two days later and then got assigned to San Antonio.

Wieland has since been traded to the Dodgers and Mariners organizations. He now pitches for Triple-A Tacoma, where he has gone 9-5 with a 5.71 ERA this season.

I always enjoy going back in the archives (as you can probably tell from this post a few weeks ago), so it was fun to see Wieland’s no-hitter through the eyes of Aaron and Brian.

That concludes this time traveling session. Thanks for joining us for the ride.
