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!
