It REALLY looked like the Rangers were going to have a combined no hitter tonight. But Joe Mauer got a 2 strike single in the ninth off of Neftali Perez.
No shame in letting up a hit to Joe Mauer.
But I had already written the piece in my head and was going to update the “Most Recent No Hitter” tally.
I don’t take the blame myself. I think Joe Mauer’s ability was more relevant than my writing a blog post.
So Kenny Rogers’s perfect game is STILL the most recent Rangers no hitter.
Padres and Mets remain on the clock.
