Two more one-hitters today, both of them broken up with 2 out in the 7th, which is an odd coincidence.

Tim Lincecum having a tough year, now has a record of 2-8.

He cruises along just fine for multiple innings but seems to suddenly lose his concentration. I've seen many innings this season where he looks absolutely great, and suddenly he gets hit around really hard, and loses his location.

Really odd to watch.

Dallas Keuchel his major league debut with the Astros

So far, so good. Keuchel goes 5 innings and no runs scored while he was in the game. He is responsible for a runner on base.

Keuchel doesn't strike people out and limits walks. He gets a good amount of groundballs. Unlikely he's much more than a fringe major league starting pitcher.


ETA: Kinsler a bases loaded triple charges an earned run to Keuchel.

But then the Royals closer also blew the save.

Matt Cain starts tonight against the Angels in Anaheim with a chance to top Johnny Vander Meer's back to back no hitters in 1938. Cain could have back to back perfect games, but even if it is just a no hitter, a consecutive perfectgame/no hitter would seem more impressive than consecutive no hitter/no hitter. Of course the odds are rather long against our having to concern ourselves with such rankings.

Vander Meer's second no hitter was sloppy affair, marred by eight walks, including walking the bases loaded in the ninth before getting the final out. The game reports say that there were a number of spectacular defensive plays made to keep the no hitter intact. It was also the first night game played in the history of Ebbet's Field

Last year Justin Verlander followed his no hitter with five no hit innings in his next outing before the balloon burst. The pitcher who has come the closest to matching Vander Meer's feat was Ewell Blackwell of the 1947 Reds, who had a no-hitter broken up with one out in the ninth against Brooklyn on June 22 of that year, four days after no-hitting the Boston Braves 6-0.
