vs. Padres in SF. Looks pretty unhittable. Hope he gets it!

Does that impact the "perfect game"?

Yep. 27 up, 27 down is no longer a possibility.

It's no longer a perfect game, but the no-hitter is still in effect.

A runner reaching base in any way ends bid for the perfect game. The no-hit bid is still intact.

Thanks. Brain cramp.

I wonder if the error was borderline. If so, Uribe saved the no-hitter bid; if not, Uribe ruined the perfect game bid.

It was definitely an error. The ball was hit right to him.

It's in the bottom of the 8th with two outs. When the Pods come up in the top of the 9th, ESPN is going live to the game.

Ha! Uribe's error costs the perfect game, but Rowand makes a nice play in the ninth to help perserve the no-hitter.

Interesting how two members of the '05 Sox play impactful roles in this no-hitter.

Apparently this was the first time his dad saw him pitch in person, too.

Eric Young is an idiot. "You don't want to be the guy that causes him to lose the no-hitter while playing behind him."

How does a position player cost the pitcher to lose a no hitter? A hit is a hit, there really isn't anything a fielder can do.

People loved to make fun of Rowand and Podsednik fans for living in the past but they are each having one hell of a year in 09!

two things:

- Rowand had one hell of a jump on that ball, something he was critized about while here. That's was awesome.

- The umps called strike 3 was priceless, it's like he was more excited than anyone else.

That was a generous strike zone too for that last batter. Danks would have walked one less batter in that first inning tonight with that zone.

You got a no-hitter in the 9th, the strike zone will probably be a bit expanded. :cool:

Sanchez was arguably the biggest longshot in that rotation to pitch a no-hitter.

Maybe it would be Zito :rolleyes:

So evidently Uribe was brought into the game as a defensive replacement and ends up sosting the kid a perfect game.

He got a gift of a call, because that was a ball. High and outside.

No, definitely an error. That ball was hit right to him. It just took a really bad hop on him...tough play.

Speaking of ex-Sox, just saw the Nationals-Astros highlights. Willie Harris gets thrown out trying to score the go-ahead run in the top of the 9th, and Geoff Blum wins it in the bottom of the 9th. Kind of funny that the score was 5-5 before the tie was broken, just like Game 3 of the World Series

It was the last strike on a no hitter, of course he is going to get a gift call. That is just how it works.

If I'm the Ump and I don't call that a strike and on the next pitch he gives up a hit, I wouldn't feel very good about myself. That was a borderline strike, but on the possible last batter of a no-hitter, that's a strike 10 times out of 10.

It was the last strike on a no hitter, of course he is going to get a gift call. That is just how it works.

Don't tell that to Milt Pappas. In 1972, against the San Diego Padres in Wrigley Field, he had a 2-2 count on pinch-hitter Larry Stahl after retiring the first 26 batters in the game. Home plate umpire Bruce Froemming called the next two close pitches balls and Pappas had to settle for a no-hitter instead of a perfect game.

The story goes that years later Pappas asked Froemming why he didn't call that last pitch a strike. Froemming reportedly said he wouldn't have been able to live with himself if he had called it a strike, prompting Pappas to ask him how he could sleep at night with all the other lousy calls he made.

In some respects, Sanchez pitched something better than a perfect game Friday night. He faced 28 batters and would have retired them all if not for a misplay by his defense. He pitched over an error to get a no-hitter, and still didn't walk or hit anyone. I think the last player to accomplish such a feat was Dick Bosman of the Indians in 1974.

I would have posted sooner, but I didn't know about the no-hitter last night until hearing about it on the radio on my way to Palo Alto this morning.

The Sox beat Sanchez last year in San Francisco, by the way. Alexei Ramirez hit a two-run home run -- his first major league homer -- for the only runs in the game.
