That’s not a typo. Garrison really did spin seven innings of no-hit baseball.

Javis Diaz: 4-for-6, 3B
Cedric Hunter (DH): 2-for-5, BB
Eric Sogard: 2-for-4, BB
Mitch Canham: 0-for-4, BB
Nathan Culp: 5.2 IP, 9 H, 1 R, 1 HR, 0 BB, 1 SO (15 GB)

If you listen carefully, you can hear the sound of folks jumping back on the Cedric Hunter bandwagon. The wind was blowing in 15 mph from right field. Culp recorded just one fly ball out, which is freakishly impressive.

  1. Went up to the Storm / Lancaster game. Storm looked good. Lars Anderson, a top Sox prospect was a butcher at 1b. He had one of the worst fielding days I’ve seen at a game. Culp looked good, not sure of his pitch count, but he could have kept going I’m sure, the last double he gave up wasn’t even that well hit, just inside the bag.

  2. Geoff – in case you missed it from the IGD:

    I placed the order on March 11th and received an shipping notice on the 13th. The Order Receipt is 2092944. I’ll check my mailbox again Monday.

  3. Rob Neyer predicts the finish and the records for the divisions. In the NL West, he has: 1. Dodgers, 2. Padres, 3. Diamondbacks, with the Padres winning the wild card.

  4. Just another milestone in Aztecs baseball last night.

    First cycle ever with the HR being the difficult variety. I wonder what’s in store today.

  5. re: 5

    I think that shows Forbes is in a bad place. Shouldn’t a magazine like that stick to the facts — like the most profitable franchises — instead of a nebulous misery index.

  6. 5: Thanks to Forbes, I now know that I am miserable. I was previously unaware.
