LA Angels Throw No Hitter in Game Honoring Tyler Skaggs

Skaggs, 27, was found dead in his hotel room after an Angels road game against the Texas Rangers due to causes that are still unknown.

Angels players had said before the game they were keeping Skaggs at the front of their minds while competing.

Angels pitchers Taylor Cole and Félix Peña combined for a no-hitter in the first game played at Angel Stadium since their teammate Tyler Skaggs died suddenly July 1.

To honor their fallen teammate, the entire Angels team wore his number, 45, on their jerseys Friday night. His mother Debbie threw out the ceremonial first pitch.

"He's still a part of the team, even though he's not here", Angels manager Brad Ausmus said.

While the team is saying goodbye to Skaggs, Friday's game will not be the end of their honoring his memory.

When he came up again in the first inning with the bases loaded, Trout roped a two-run double to left field.

Cole was the Angels' starting pitcher in an opener role, and the right-handed did a good job retiring six in a row over two innings, two on strikeouts.

Then, in the first inning, the Angels biggest star, outfielder Mike Trout, helped put the game out of reach.

Taylor Cole opened with two flawless innings before Félix Peña came on for seven more, allowing only a fifth-inning walk. A picture of Skaggs was also included on the center-field wall and a video montage was provided on the scoreboard. You just hurt so much for Tyler's family.

For the rest of the season, a No. 45 patch will remain on the player's jerseys, his locker will be kept intact and everywhere they go on the road, a locker will be left for him, Major League Baseball said.
