With Corbin Burnes and Josh Hader combining for the second no-hitter in Brewers history, it was a special night for the team. There was plenty to say after the game, so let’s go through all of it.
First of all, immediately following the game, Bally Sports Wisconsin interviewed Burnes, Hader, and battery mate Omar Narvaez, who called all nine inning behind the plate for these two pitchers.

Following the game, there were plenty of interviews with the media to go around. Corbin Burnes was up first, talking about his start.

Craig Counsell sat down in his postgame press conference to talk about the no-hitter, which included having to talk about his decision when he pulled Corbin Burnes from the game after eight innings.

If you’re looking for the radio call, here’s the call from the Brewers broadcast for the final out of the game.

You can also listen to the full postgame radio broadcast from the Brewers Radio Network.
Also lost in some of the celebration is that Corbin Burnes reached the 200 strikeout mark for the season in tonight’s start, the sixth pitcher in Brewers history to accomplish that feat.
It’s been 34 years since the Brewers only other no-hitter in franchise history, which happened on April 15, 1987. If you’re looking for a more exact figure, it has been 12,568 days.
The Brewers no-hitter is the ninth of the season around the league, making this the season with the most no-hitters in MLB history.
Also, Cleveland starting pitcher Zach Plesac has earned his place in history, though on the wrong side. Cleveland has been no-hit three times this season, and Plesac was the starting pitcher for all three games, a first in MLB history and second in a MLB career. (Cleveland also had a fourth game with no hits, but that was a seven-inning game against Tampa Bay.)
With the win, the Brewers are officially on pace now to reach 100 wins, which would be a first in franchise history (the high for wins in a season is 96).
