New York, NY (Sports Network) - Cincinnati Reds pitcher Homer Bailey was named the National League player of the week for the period ending Sept. 30.

Bailey tossed the 15th no-hitter in franchise history last Friday in Pittsburgh. It marked the first time the Pirates were no-hit since Bob Gibson accomplished the feat for the Cardinals in 1971.

The right-hander's gem was the seventh no-no thrown in the majors this year, tying the modern-era record.

Others considered for the weekly award were Los Angeles' Adrian Gonzalez, Washington's Bryce Harper and Philadelphia's Cole Hamels.
