[Update] Hernandez is now perfect through eight. I need a drink.
[Update] Hernandez is now perfect through seven. Let’s try something else…
[Update] Hernandez is now perfect through six. And pitch count will most certainly not be an issue as he has only needed 69 pitches so far.
[Earlier] No team has been no-hit more times since the start of the 2009 season than the Tampa Bay Rays who have done it three times. In fact, no other team has been no-hit three times in the past decade.
And the Rays are in danger of adding a fourth today as Felix Hernandez has retired the first 12 batters he has faced.
So at the request of a couple of readers, let’s hope this serves as the official jinx.
