Jordan Zimmermann Throws Nats First No-Hitter

Have the Nats peaked too soon???

After having his final regular season start pushed back due to a bruised shoulder – an injury suffered on a line drive that bounced off his arm eight days prior – Jordan Zimmermann took the mound Sunday hoping to dispel any doubts about his health before the playoffs. Boy, did he.

The Nationals right-hander tossed the first no-hitter in club history, a one-walk performance of pure beauty that began with 4 2/3 perfect innings and featured 10 strikeouts…

No-hitter! Four Phillies pitchers combine to blank the Braves

Jesse Spector
@jessespector

Congratulations to the Phillies on filling 58 minutes of their hour-long season highlight video!

The Phillies have no-hit the Braves. It was a combined effort, with Cole Hamels, Jake Diekman, Ken Giles and Jonathan Papelbon combining on the effort. Hamels took the first six innings and each of the relievers handled an inning. They combined to strike out 12 Braves hitters… it was the 12th no-hitter in franchise history. And the first ever combined no-no for Philly…

Cole Hamels… wasn’t a study in efficiency. H threw 108 pitches and walked five guys, but no one managed a hit off of him.

Danny Duffy flirts with perfection as Royals shut out Orioles 1-0

The Duff-Man says, “OH YEA!”

He was some kind of special tonight,” Yost said after Duffy strung together a perfect-game bid that lasted 20 batters, long enough to remind the 24,064 in attendance of his tantalizing talent.

His chance at a franchise-first had ended the inning before. But his achievement was still worth celebrating. Duffy handed the baseball to his manager after giving up an eighth-inning single, just his second hit allowed. He slapped a hand across the chests of the five teammates surrounding him. Then a wave of adulation washed over him from the stands at Kauffman Stadium and from inside his own dugout.

Duffy, 2-3, 1.42 ERA, pitched into the eighth inning for the first time in his professional career on Saturday. He finished seven batters shy of the fifth no-hitter in franchise history. Baltimore center fielder Adam Jones wrecked Duffy’s night by grounding a single up the middle with two outs in the seventh. Duffy walked none, and in the process, appeared to cement his place in the team’s starting rotation.
