The Houston Astros became the first team in MLB history with a pair of immaculate innings in one game when Luis García and Phil Maton both breezed through three Texas Rangers batters on Wednesday.

Prior to Wednesday, there had never before been two immaculate innings (striking out the side with nine pitches) on the same day in MLB, let alone in the same game or by the same team.

García, 25, did it first when he sat down the Rangers’ Nathaniel Lowe, Ezequiel Duran, and Brad Miller in the second inning.
