Haha, this is his first career start by the way. He had been in their bullpen the past year and a half.

I had an idea he was on the Mariners.

89 pitches. First start. Interesting.

The fact that he's on the Mariners makes it hard for me to believe it will actually happen. Plus, they're playing the Yankees who are hot right now.

Yeah, just saw that. They sent him down just to get stretched out to be a starter. Guess it's working out well.

It was exciting to be at the stadium last night watching it unfold. It was too bad that he gave up the hit, but in reality, he was close to being pulled any way and this made the decision to put in a relief pitcher much easier for the Manager. It was a fantastic game and one of the few bright spots on the season.

Has anyone ever pitched a no no in their first career start? I know Anibal Sanchez did it as a rookie, but first start?

I looked it up on Wikipedia. Two pitchers have done it.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/No-hitter

One back in the late 19th century, and one in 1953.

Wilson Alvarez did it in his second start in 1991. And then Bucholz did it last year for the Bosox.

Still, quite uncommon.
