Former Tigers Pitcher Involved In Mariners Combined No-Hitter

Friday night's combined no-hitter by the Seattle Mariners saw six pitchers combine to blank the Los Angeles Dodgers. One of those pitchers was a former Detroit Tiger, as mlive.com points out:

Left-hander Charlie Furbush pitched to three batters while throwing two-thirds of an inning Friday night. He was the second of six Mariners pitchers to appear in the combined no-hitter.

More on Furbush after the jump.

Furbush pitched two thirds of an inning in the seventh. He faced three batters, one of whom reached on a throwing error by the pitcher. Furbush played for Detroit in 2011 and made 17 appearances, including two starts. He posted a 3.62 ERA and a ERA+ of 114 before being one of four men the Tigers traded for Doug Fister and David Pauley.
