The Rangers somehow are now just 3 games off the pace of the Western Division lead. And don’t look now, but they may have the deepest rotation of any of the contenders.

It is a “Lone Star State” episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Note, I recorded this BEFORE Jake Arrieta threw his no hitter.

Jake Arrieta, Derek Holland, Stephen Drew, Jayson Werth, Mike Trout and Marlon Byrd all added to their totals for Who Owns Baseball

Chuck Booth’s 2015 MLB Park Historical Road Trip


The GOAL: 183 Straight Days (every single day at least 1 gm) Of ALL 30 MLB Parks Trip In 2015 (221 Games) view full year schedule.

The CAUSE:  To Raise Money for Concussion Awareness (via Sports Legacy Institute. donate money here) Through Inspiring Others.

So it finally happened after 174 Games into the trip, and 148 Days overall.  I saw a no-hitter tossed by Jake Arrieta in my only game at Dodger Stadium this year.

It was one day after my birthday party in Phoenix yesterday.

It also marked the 375th game I have been to in the MLB ever.

My buddy Ken Lee had to wait 1198 games to make his 1st no hitter count (Although he is also one of 18 crowds to ever see a 4 HR game in 2002, when Mike Cameron blasted 4 bolts at US Cellular Field.)

My pal Tike Narry has now seen 4 no-hitters or perfect games in his last 360 contests after waiting almost 600 matchups to witness his 1st 9 frames without any hits allowed. Read the rest of this entry

Jake Arrieta threw the first Cubs no hitter since 2008, allowing 1 walk and struck out 12 Dodgers and completed his 2-0 masterpiece.

Derek Holland threw a complete game 3 hit shutout, walking none and struck out 11 Orioles along the way as the Rangers triumphed, 6-0.

Stephen Drew reached base 6 times, launching a 2 run homer, drove in 4 and scored 3 times, helping the Yankees humiliate the Braves, 20-6.

Jayson Werth walked, doubled and homered, driving in 3 and scored the tying run for the Nationals who got a much needed 7-4 win against the Marlins.

Earning 1/2 WOBs on losing efforts.

Mike Trout collected 4 hits, including a double and a triple, but the free falling Angels lost again, 9-2.

Marlon Byrd drove in 4 runs with a pair doubles, a single and a triple. But he was stranded each time and the Giants fell short to the Cardinals, 7-5.
