CINCINNATI (AP) - Homer Bailey didn't have much time Tuesday night to celebrate his second career no-hitter. He had to get up early Wednesday to tend to his horses.
Cincinnati's Texas-born right-hander celebrated his no-no against the Giants by calling his family while listening to music, he said. He also spent time answering more than 200 text messages from former teammates and current and former major-leaguers - including fellow Texan Roger Clemens - while squeezing in a visit to the two horses he stables locally.
Bailey, who pitched the final no-hitter of last season at Pittsburgh on September 28 before logging the first of this season, did not hear from Nolan Ryan, another hard-throwing Texas right-hander and the last pitcher to throw back-to-back no-hitters in 1974 and 1975.
Bailey's next scheduled start is Sunday against Seattle in Cincinnati.
