It’d be cool if you could actually seal the deal.
Unless you enjoy following mediocre baseball teams in Chicago, you may not know that White Sox pitcher Gavin Floyd lost his bid for a no-hitter last night with one out in the ninth inning against the Twinkies.
It’s the second time Floyd has taken a no-hitter into the late innings this season. He held Detroit down for 7 1/3 innings in mid-April.
This is the same Gavin Floyd, you may recall, that spent his first three years in The Show getting knocked around a bit with the Phillies before he landed in Chicago. I’ll never understand how Philly gives up on a kid with this kind of stuff. I mean, he’s only 25.
But they do have Jamie Moyer, so….
Congrats, Gavin. I guess those blow-up dolls really worked.
