The Most Recent No Hitter For Each Franchise (Updated for Sean Manaea)

That’s one way to slow down the Red Sox!

Sean Manaea faced a red hot Red Sox team who was throwing their ace and said “I have a novel idea. Why don’t I throw a no hitter?”

A bloop over the infield could have been called a hit instead of an error and it looked like Benitendi reached until a replay showed the glove brushing his shirt.

Now a bright young star no hit the hottest team in baseball and who else was in the stadium? Dallas Braden, who had thrown the previous no hitter in A’s history.

Hat tipped from THIS Red Sox fan.

Now to update the list.

Meanwhile the Reds were right to fire Bryan Price but they should have done it nearly 2 years ago.
