Cleveland did score a run...see the narrative....crazy game...got to watch the replay later.
It’s not a no-no since they scored a run.
He has some wicked pitches...see #3.
Seems like only yesterday he couldn't do anything right at away games.
Well done, Ervin!
On the flip side, a pitcher for Cleveland’s AAA team threw a perfect game last night.
Of course it is. You can score a run without getting a base hit. Just one example would be reaching on a leadoff error, stealing second, moving to third on a sacrifice bunt and scoring on a ground out.
A no-no means “no hits, no runs”. Hence two “no’s”. Santana threw a no-hitter. He did not throw a no-no.
It is true that it wasn't a perfect game, because there were walks, errors and runs.
Actually “no-no” means no hits AND no runs. See Glossary of Baseball: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glossary_of_baseball_(N)
Nobody said anything about a perfect game, which means no one reached base (27 up and 27 down in a 9 inning game.)
