Peacock makes history with 3-plus inning no-hit save in World Series

Houston Astros reliever Brad Peacock entrenched his name in baseball’s record books Friday night.

The right-hander became the first reliever to no-hit his opponents while pitching three or more innings in a World Series game since the save became an official stat in 1969, according to Jon Morosi of MLB Network.

In addition, Peacock is the first reliever to toss over three, no-hit innings since Ron Taylor in 1964.

Madison Bumgarner (2014) and Steve Howe (1981) are the only other pitchers since 1969 to record an 11-plus out save in a World Series game.

In relief of starter Lance McCullers, Peacock was brilliant, tossing 35 of his 53 pitches for strikes.
