Homer Bailey recorded his second career no-hitter on Tuesday, becoming just the fourth active player with multiples. The Cincinnati Reds pitcher also tossed the last MLB no-hitter back in September 2012, making him the first pitcher since Nolan Ryan in 1975 to have thrown the last two.

But the big winner tonight? Some dude who took a huge, ridiculous swing on a $400 bet that a major-league pitcher would do it on Tuesday:

(Shapiro does “Business Development at William Hill US.”)

That’s one of the best huge-balls bets since that Giants opening-score safety in Super Bowl XLVI against the Patriots.
