The no-no was lost with two outs in the first. But Anibel Sanchez will take a no-hitter into the ninth against the Rockies.

Well it's very embarrassing to admit that I had no idea that no-no didn't mean no-hitter, that's just always what I've called it. :redface: I will use it properly from now on, thank you. :smile:

There's plenty of embarrassment to go around. In re-reading my post, I see that I misspelled Anibal Sanchez.

YES!!! :bandance: Fowler breaks it up on the first pitch.

Good game for Anibal though. Tip of the cap to you, sir.

I've always understood "no-no" to mean a no-hitter. I've never understood it to exclusively mean a perfect game.

No-no is old-time newspaper headline shorthand for no-hit, no-run game.

Perfecto is old time newspaper headline for perfect game.

That's news to me, but it is interesting.

You'll admit, then, that "no-no" is used incorrectly very, very frequently, no?

Yes, it is, and I find it a bit annoying, as long as you mention it.

Many fans don't make the distinction because most no-hitters are also shutouts.

A no-no is a no hitter (http://www.allwords.com/word-no-no.html), not a perfect game.

I also have assumed that "no-no" was shorthand for no runs, no hits, [ or no hits, no runs ] sorta like the inning summary of no runs, no hits, no errors. But, it didn't have to be a perfect game to be a no-no. Back in the early to mid-80's (too lazy too look it up right now), White Sox pitcher Joe Cowley (no, not the Sun-Times scribe) had a rather ugly no-hitter where, IIRC, he walked the bases full and gave up a run on a sacrifice fly. He still pitched a complete game no-hitter, but he was nicknamed "Dr. No" because he didn't earn the second "no", the no runs portion.

:gulp:

Edit: That was in 9/19/1986, walking 7 (!) in a 7 - 1 victory over the California Angels. Another baseball oddity, Cowley would never win another game in MLB.
