SEATTLE (AP) — Mariners catcher Jesus Montero wasted little time searching for keepsakes from Seattle's unlikely no-hitter.

The rookie catcher printed pictures of the six pitchers involved in Friday's combined no-hitter against the Los Angeles Dodgers, plus a couple shots of the on-field celebration. He handed out the photos with a Sharpie and asked for a signature, the phrase "no-hitter" and the date.

He says the game was "so special" for him and he wants to remember it.

Montero was the one constant in the 10th combined no-hitter in major league history. Kevin Millwood started the game, then was followed by a parade of relievers after injuring his groin and coming out after the sixth inning.

Millwood had an MRI, but the results were not known prior to Saturday's game against Los Angeles.
