    When the Minnesota Twins’ Francisco Liriano and the Detroit Tigers’ Justin Verlander recorded no-hitters four days apart in early May, it appeared as though we were headed for a season full of no-hit games.  However, heading into yesterday’s action we hadn’t seen a single pitcher accomplish that feat since Verlander no-hit the Jays on May […]

    It is well known throughout the Majors that when Tim Lincecum is on the mound for the San Francisco Giants, the opposition isn’t going to be providing their pitcher with much run support.  That was the case for the Los Angeles Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw yesterday afternoon, but luckily for him and his team, one run […]
