    The Stat Line Of The Night — 7/27/11 — Ervin Santana

    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 […]
