A Manaea No-No, walk-off bunt, and 13 pitch homer, oh my

It was an exciting Saturday around major league baseball last night as Sean Manaea threw the season's first no-hitter, Ender Inciarte ended a game with a walk-off bunt, Jesus Aguilar turned a 13-pitch at bat into a walk-off homer, and Mike Clevinger only allowed two hits in a complete game performance. All of these feats have been immortalized in today's Topps Now trading card releases.

A full checklist of this year's Topps Now cards can be found on the main page of this hub but today's release is as follows:

  • 108 - Ender Inciarte (Atlanta Braves) stepped up to the plate in the bottom of the ninth with the game newly tied at 3 after a Johan Camargo triple scored Dansby Swanson from first. Kurt Suzuki was on first and one out was on the board. Inciarte, with a 1-3 count, bunted down the first base line which allowed Camargo to score from third and end the game which the Braves had been trailing for nine innings.
  • 109 - Jesus Aguilar (Milwaukee Brewers) had an at-bat that was described by teammate Eric Sogard as the, "most impressive at bat probably anybody has ever seen!". Entering the bottom of the ninth tied at 5, Aguilar was behind quickly with an 0-2 count. He then took a ball, three fouls, a second ball, another foul, a third ball, and three more fouls before he homered off of a 92 mph four-seamer to end the game.
  • 110 - Mike Clevinger (Cleveland Indians) took his second W of the season by pitching a gem of a game against the Baltimore Orioles. It was the righties first complete game in the majors and it also happened to be a shutout with just two hits. The 107 pitch game included two walks and three strike outs.
  • 111 - Sean Manaea (Oakland Athletics) also threw his first complete game on Saturday and, against the hottest hitting team in baseball, refused to allow a single hit, striking out 10 along the way. The only base runners came from two walks although there was a close call when Andrew Benintendi was called safe at first in the sixth but, upon umpire conference, it was determined that he went too far out of the base path and was charged with batter interference. This is the 12th no-hitter in Athletics franchise history.

Each of these cards is available for purchase for 24 hours only and print runs are limited to consumer demand. Use any of the links on this page to purchase your copies of these limited edition baseball cards.

@peepso_user_1 Loved watching every second of that no-hitter. What a great night for baseball and then the next day Brandon Belt has the longest at bat ever. Gotta love this game.
