CINCINNATI -- Until Homer Bailey walked off the mound Tuesday night, it had been 25 years since a Red threw a no-hitter for the team in Cincinnati.
Now he has thrown two for the team in the last 10 months.
More than 27,000 fans were on their feet with anticipation at Great American Ball Park as the team took on the San Francisco Giants.
The Reds won 3-0 and Homer Bailey was the hero by throwing his second no-hitter -- the last was in Sept. 2012 in Pittsburgh.
Reds fans were ecstatic with the performance, especially after the slump the team has been in lately.
"Tonight, what Homer Bailey did for the whole Cincinnati community was unbelievable. Few fans in baseball will ever get to witness a no-hitter so we'll never forget this night," fan Joe Condit said.
Reds fan Michael Green said, "Dusty Baker is the kind of manage who allows a pitcher to go all the way if he feels it is in his capability and I'm very proud of Homer Bailey."
Fans are hoping that momentum will carry the team through the holiday weekend.
Fireworks displays are scheduled for Wednesday and Friday nights. A Todd Frazier bobblehead giveaway will take place Wednesday and this weekend fans can get T-shirts and kids hats.
Officials said tickets are still available and the Reds are in town through Sunday.
