Starting on Saturday night, Rich Hill was perfect threw 7 innings when manager Dave Roberts pulled him because of a hot finger. For those of you that don't know what a hot finger is don't be ashamed, I'm sure almost no one does, it's basically a sensation in your finger right before you get a blister, and these have plagued Rich Hill's career. Also these are the types of injuries other sport fans look at and call us baseball players pussy for, God damnit Dodgers, why do you have to make baseball players look soft by disclosing the actual injury. Next time, just lie and say it's a concussion or torn ACL so we can sound tougher, people coming out of games for blisters is not a good look. Anyways, that was the first failed no hitter attempt of the week. Next, Kyle Hendricks, a frontrunner for the NL Cy Young award was dealing on Monday. He was through 8 innings and allowed not a single hit. He had just three more outs to go to accomplish one of the hardest feats in all of baseball. Well, up came the first batter Jeremy Hazelbaker, what a stupid last name, and he put one over the fence. Not just ending the no hitter but also ending the complete game shutout, must've been a real gut wrenching feeling for sure, to come that far to come up short is always the worst way to lose the No No. I'm sure a Cy Young will help ease the pain though. The most recent attempt came last night in a meaningless Angels-Mariners game. Taijuan Walker, was perfect through 5 2/3 innings before an error by his shortstop put an end to that, but he still had the no no in tact through six. The lead off guy in the seventh came up and put an end to that with a lead of single, that was one of the three hits he would let up the entire game as he pitched a complete game shutout. Too bad he was just another victim to fall at the hands of the nearly impossible challenge of throwing a no hitter against world class professional baseball players. Three players in less than a week came within nine outs of this amazing accomplishment, none could do it. Just goes to show how impressive it is when someone can actually record all 27 outs without a base runner reaching on a hit. Will Jake Arieta have the lone no hitter in baseball this year or will someone join him in these last few weeks.
