I'm all in for it. Let's get to 30. I love it. Baseball was juicing the balls for so long...
Man, I don't know how I feel about this yet. I feel like if there are too many, the ninth inning of a potential no-hitter stops being must-see TV. Although if this means I finally get to see one in person, I might change my mind.

Miley was gifted an error that could have easily been a ruled a hit. The second baseman had to make a backhanded stop on a hard hit ball up the middle, knocked the ball down, and then skipped in a rushed throw.

It's unbelievable that Wade Miley has a no-hitter while people like Pedro and Clemens never did. Yes I know Pedro had a 9-inning perfect game lost because it went to the 10th and he gave up a hit in the 10th, so it doesn't count.

This is the look of a guy who shares in that disbelief:

This Zach Plesac performance kind of snuck up on me since he was uncharacteristically wild early on, but it's gotten interesting through 6 innings... and now at an efficient 68 pitches.

Line drive single over the infield to open the 8th. The longest drought without a no-hitter lives on. Cleveland hasn't been on the right end of a no-hitter since Lenny Barker's perfect game in 1981 (Plesac has been on the wrong end both times Cleveland was no-hit this season).

First time Turnbull has ever pitched past the 7th, looks like he is losing it a bit with a leadoff walk.

Seeing all these no-hitters this year, I look at the Sox rotation, is there anyone who could do it with Boston? I mean, any given day, I get it, but who would you guess is the main candidate to throw one?

The Land of Thomas Cecil
Seasons in which multiple teams have been no hit, multiple times: 2021 with Indians and Mariners, 2015 with Mets and Dodgers, 1884 with Nationals and Alleghenys.

That was beautiful to watch, you can tell it meant the world to the Detroit organization, from Turnbull on down. An exodus, exhale as one, climbing the mountain, planting the flag, and entering safe descendent down, where nobody can diminish your mark of immortality.

And yet, it happened in the pitch of the night; in Detroit exceeding the hour midnight. So often, we associate blackness and darkness with death, or the ending of something. But what this black symbolized a different end for an oft-struggling franchise like the Tigers? The day, the sun, and its morning in a few hours, will be reborn anew, and perhaps the cage of the tiger shall be without its shackles; unleashed. Bill Squires perhaps foretold of an evening such as this: The long run puts the tiger in the cat.

I've always associated Turnbull with a guy you love to see on the mound as an opposing fan because it's a guaranteed win, so I had to look it up... and it turns out he's clearly pitching in the wrong league. He's actually 7-2 with a 2.78 ERA in interleague play, which means he just improved his career record in the AL to 3-23 with a 4.96 ERA (it was 5.22 entering the game). Of course, his career record against the AL Central is 1-15, so maybe it's just that he can only beat teams that haven't seen him before... he'd only pitched 5 previous innings against the Mariners.

I hope somebody does. I need some free furniture!

It seems like just about every night now you can check the scores around 8:30 or so and find some team is hitless in the 5th inning.
Teams are averaging 7.83 hits per game this year. When the average is that low for something that can only be measured in whole numbers, 0 is going to show up an awful lot. I hope Theo has some good ideas, because the games are hard to watch for fans of most teams.

No-hitters typically mean faster games and are pretty much always exciting from the 7th inning on. Is it really that big of a problem that there are more no-hitters?

I know it's hard to believe, but it's in the 8th inning and Texas hasn't gotten a single hit all night long off Kluber of the Yankees. Not. A. Single. Hit.

Not a typo.
