In their first home game since teammate Tyler Skaggs' recent death, Taylor Cole and Felix Pena teamed for the 13th combined no-hitter in major league history as the Los Angeles Angels in a 13-0 victory over the Seattle Mariners Friday night in Anaheim, Calif. Every Angels player wore the No. 45 with the name Skaggs on the back of their jersey, in honor of pitcher Tyler Skaggs, who passed away July 1. The Angels held a ceremony to honor Skaggs before the game and his mother Debbie threw out the ceremonial first pitch before the game -- a perfect strike caught by Skaggs' best friend on the Angels, Andrew Heaney.

It was the 11th no-hitter in Angels' history and the second combined no-hitter. Mike Witt (seven innings) and Mark Langston (two innings) paired up for a no-hitter -- also against the Mariners -- on April 11, 1990. Cole served as the club's "opener," needing just 22 pitches to get through two innings. Pena (7-2) entered the game to start the third inning and allowed only one baserunner -- a one-out walk to Omar Narvaez in the fifth inning -- over the remaining seven innings to finish it off.

The closest the Mariners came to a hit came in the sixth inning when Mac Williamson led off with a hard-hit grounder toward the hole at short. But third baseman Matt Thaiss made a diving stop and strong throw to first to record the out. The Angels had plenty of offense, getting 13 hits in all, including three each from David Fletcher, Mike Trout and Andrelton Simmons.

Trout had two hits in the first inning alone, hitting a two-run homer (No. 29) and adding a two-run double. Trout finished with a homer, two doubles, a walk, hit-by-pitch and six RBIs. Justin Upton also homered for Los Angeles. The Angels essentially put the game away in the first inning when they sent 13 batters to the plate, scoring seven runs on eight hits.

Fletcher led off with a double and Trout followed with a home run on the first pitch he saw from Mariners starter Mike Leake (7-8), crushing an 89-mph sinker an estimated 454 feet for a 2-0 lead. Simmons and Dustin Garneau each had RBI singles, and Trout came up for a second time in the inning and had a two-run double.
