From Last Night:

  • Homer Bailey pitches his second career no-hitter, first in MLB this season, against the Giants
  • Bailey walked 1 and struck out 9 across 109 pitches
  • Bailey is now 11th among pitchers in WAR at 2.9, has a 3.57 ERA, 2.66 FIP, 2.97 xFIP in 111 IP
  • He is getting more strikeouts, fewer walks, and more groundballs than last year

  • He did it basically with a fastball and slider, with a handful of changeups and curves mixed in

  • He Verlander’d them, throwing harder as the game went on

What I’m Watching Today:

  • Harvey Day! (7p Eastern)
  • Felix faces Holland in Texas (8p Eastern)
  • Shelby Miller heads to the big A (10p Eastern)

The Big Question:

  • Did anything else interesting happen that didn’t make the cut in the headlines section?

Lackey was pretty good, some other stuff happened. First no-hitter in New English D history. Exciting stuff!
