Edwin Jackson overcame a wild start to throw the fourth no-hitter in the season of the pitcher, leading the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 1-0 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Friday.

Jackson (5-6) threw a whopping 149 pitches — a major league high — and walked eight, all but one in the first three innings, in the second no-hitter in Diamondbacks' history.

This is the third time the Rays have been no-hit since last July, including Dallas Braden's perfect game at Oakland on May 9.

Colorado's Ubaldo Jimenez no-hit Atlanta on April 17 and Philadelphia's Roy Halladay tossed a perfect game at Florida on May 29. Armando Galarraga had his perfect game ended with two outs in the ninth on a blown call by umpire Jim Joyce.

Adam LaRoche homered off Jeff Niemann (6-2) with one out in the second, all the support Jackson would need.
