A lead-off double in the bottom of the 9th ended his no-hit bid.

A subsequent double scored a run and ended the shutout.

He had a complete game 2-hitter, and won by a score of 5-1.




At least he salvaged a complete-game (in addition to his W.)

It really sucks when a pitcher on the brink of everything loses it all (the potential perfect game, no-hitter, shutout, and complete-game), and has to settle for a win ...... although, there are exceptions to the rule. Harvey Haddix, while losing everything INCLUDING THE GAME back in 1958, has actually gone down historically as more famous for what he did in that game (pitched a perfect game through 12 innings) than do many other pitchers who have pitched no-hitters. Also, his game actually was recognized by MLB as a perfect game until 1991, when they changed the official definition of what a perfect game was.

Edwin Jackson has a no hitter through 6 innings against the Giants.

Washed up starter who was never very good but who has become a half decent reliever in his mid 30s, making a spot start after Pomeranz was traded?

THAT guy?

Baseball tough to figure sometimes.
