In case you were wondering where I was this morning, I had a little too much fun last night:
San Francisco Giants pitcher Chris Heston no-hit the Mets on Tuesday for a 5-0 victory in New York.
Heston (6-4) struck out 11 and did not allow a walk, but hit three batters — including one in the ninth inning — to ruin his chance at a perfect game. The three hit batters are the most ever in a no-hitter.
“Definitely something I’ll remember forever,” Heston said of the no-hitter.
I was watching the game but I didn’t realize Heston was working on a no-no until the 7th inning when the camera panned the scoreboard showing all the zeroes and Giants announcer Duane Kuiper said “It’s starting to get very interesting.”
(As baseball fans know, you don’t want to jinx a no-hitter by talking about it.)
The Giants have been around since before my grandparents were born and that was only the 17th no-hitter in their history. It was kind of a special night. So maybe I celebrated a little bit.
Anyway, I am still alive and still reveling in the awesomeness.
This is an open thread.
