There is no more enjoyable personal accomplishment in sports to watch than a No hitter (save for a Perfect game). Jonathan Sanchez, a relative nobody, was the center of the sports world last night around midnight.
Was it his fifteen minutes of fame or is this a precursor to a great career and yet another sick young pitcher in the Giants system? Time will tell, but great performance. In actuality the 26 year old lefty should have had a perfect game.
Uribe booted a grounder in the 8th inning to destroy the dream of a perfect game. It would have been the first one since Randy Johnson, currently with the Giants, threw a perfect 27 outs against the Braves.
I just wish I had Johnny rookie card yesterday instead of today.
