San Francisco’s Jonathan Sanchez made history tonight throwing a no-hitter against San Diego.  Sanchez struck out 11 Padres en route to his no-no.  Only a Juan Uribe 8th Inning error kept Sanchez from throwing a Perfect Game as he did not issue any Walks.  77 of his 110 pitches went for strikes.

Sanchez improved to just 3-8 on the year with a 4.69 ERA, a 1.50 WHIP, and 79 Ks in 78-2/3 Innings.  He got the start because Randy Johnson went on the DL.

    Good for Sanchez. Hard to believe that he wasn’t even supposed to start. Interesting how many things happen for guys in baseball that aren’t supposed to be that good. Seems like a lot (relatively speaking) of no-nos are thrown starters that aren’t a team’s ace.

    Yeah, unless you’re Randy Johnson or Nolan Ryan.
