(Yahoo)   I dreamt that the Mariners pitched a no-hitter. Kevin Millwood, you were there. Charlie Furbush, you were there, too. And so were you, Stephen Pryor, Lucas Luetge, Brandon League, and Tom Wilhelmsen   (sports.yahoo.com) divider line 38

Hehe, "Furbush"

Furbush (past tense furbushed) -- new verb to describe when a team no hits the other but more than one pitcher is involved.

Meh. Try doing it at Yankee Stadium.

The Houston Astros would like a word with you. Or was that the joke?

Yea, combined does seem to take away from it but here's a fun fact: combined no hitters are rarer than unassisted triple plays and single players hitting 4 home runs in a game.

Makes sense, though. How often is a manager going to take out a pitcher that hasn't allowed a single hit?

Not all of us are frat boys that go to wrigley for the party. Some even know the cubs were good, once. Around the same time the headline was popular.

Thats my question, why take a starter out in the 6th when he hasnt allowed a hit?

CSB:

I was at a friend's b-day party last night. When some of us found out what was about to happen via updates on our phones, we made sure not to jinx it by using the words "no" and "hitter". Then some yahoo in the living overheard us and said "Are you talking about the potential no hitter?"

In unison, five of us told him to shut up.

/Not really a CSB.
//Go Mariners.

I don't know if it's the case here, but it usually happens when there's an injury of some sort. Something sudden, so it hasn't had a chance to affect the pitcher's performance yet.
 
2012-06-09 10:54:22 AM
Kevin Millwood injured his groin. He took one warm up pitch and then he came out of the game.

Just wish it hadn't happened in their softball uniforms, as Bone called them. Nice Job M's!! So it's Bosio, Unit, and now these guys.

It could theoretically also happen after a rain delay.

Though here, the Mariners are saying Millwood has a groin injury.

I was watching the game. Millwood came out to start warming up, took one throw that didn't have much gas in it, barely started to into the windup for another one, then dropped his leg and started walking off the field with a huge "yeahno" body language. He looked frustrated as hell.

Magnificent pitching up to that point, though. And awesome that the rest of the bullpen could keep it going. League and Luetge have been hit-and-miss on their production lately, and Pryor is fresh off the assembly line, so it was a thing of beauty watching them all pull it together in the clutch.

series win against rangers and angels, now this! Seattle has hope and change.

The best combined no hitter was the (almost) perfect game that Babe Ruth and Ernie Shore pitched in 1917 against the Washington Senators. Ruth walked the first batter, argued balls and strikes with the umpire, got ejected, then took a swing at the ump.

Ernie Shore came on in relief, picked the runner off first, and retired the next 26 batters in order. This was considered a perfecto until the 1990's, when Bud Selig made the inevitable wrong decision to alter history and downgrade and denigrate Shore's Ruthian effort.

That is extremely cool, and Selig making a boneheaded call on the matter is totally predictable.

Combined no-no, yes. Perfect game in any sense of the phrase, no. Perfect game is 27 up, 27 down... Number of pitchers doesn't matter. Perfect game is not "put the lead-off guy on and pick him off then retire everyone else".

Selig is an idiot however for downgrading any of those rain-shortened no-hitters or no-hitters where the home team won but had no hits. I'm sure Andy Hawkins would agree.

Shore should get credit for an ultra-perfect game.

26 up, 27 down. Good luck doing better than that.

If you define a no-hitter as "nine or more innings of no-hit ball in a single game, beginning with the first batter" then Selig was correct.

/Tough luck for the affected pitchers as it was out of their control, but the same is true of guys whose only hit allowed was a bloop or infield single.

So I guess you could say, for the Mariners' pitching staff, there's no place like home.

I hear the Mariners are being sold to business group from OKC.

Thunder up!

But 27 DID come up. And 27 DID go down. Ernie Shore faced the bare minimum of batters. If anything, Ernie Shore threw a better than perfect game.

Was at the game! was very fun. Millwood had a no hitter going into the 7th, but for some reason he took himself out of the game. He looked like he was in pain, and he was only 64 pitches in at the 7th.

Headed to the game today. I expect to get blown out 7 to 3 or some shiat, but you just never know.

LA SUUUUUCKKKKSSSS!

HA! It was actually 8 to 3!
