Danny Salazar recorded 11 outs... 10 of which came by strikeout. When he wasn't striking people out he was busy giving up 5 ER... Anyone watch the start? What was his deal??

Strasburg and Gerrit Cole were monsters. 22 K's between them.

Today I've got Jose Fernandez @PHI and Julio Teheran vsWSH, and a lead that's essentially insurmountable after the performances by Stras and Cole.

Otherwise I'm calling the following people out: Joey Votto, Aaron Hill, Carlos Santana, Curtis Granderson... GET GOIN'!! :-[

Who is going to get the no hitter today?
Darvish, Sale, Price, Porcello, Burnett or Burgarner?
We have some good pitchers against crappy teams today. About time for a no no.

I watched his his entire outing this morning, fast forwarding thru everything else. He had young Kerry Wood stuff going on, and I'd compare the two up and down talent wise. He was all over the place and had no command of his pitches, which inflated his pitch count and K rate. The hits were mostly on secondary pitches left out over the plate. The only out not on a K was on an Eaton RBI single he tried to stretch into a double. Jose Abreu launched a moonshot off a flat changeup, and Alexei Ramirez is apparently his kryptonite, and is something like 6 for 7 against him now. The balls they did put into play found holes and aside from Alexei owning him and the one mistake to Abreu, he looked electric and not just hard to hit, but hard to catch as well. I'm guessing with him and Bauer in the rotation Carlos Santana is glad he's not behind the dish.

Conjuring memories of Matt Young:

Matt Young's No Hitter on April 12, 1992 sponsor(s) this page.

Eight innings pitched, seven walks, six strikeouts, five more left on base by Boston than Cleveland, four bags stolen by Kenny Lofton, three total runs, two allowed to the Indians, only one scored by the Sox, and of course no hits allowed.

Finished the year with more no hitters than wins, going 0-4.

I was lucky enough to have watched that game with my father on an old black and white television (must have been a Sunday) that one and the game the Sox scored 10 runs in the 1st inning and still wound up losing (to the Blue Jays IIRC, mookie u remember that one?) are the two games I remember most growing up.
