YET ANOTHER COMBINED NO HITTER
Aaron Sanchez was supposed to be a reclaimation project for the Astros. Well, I guess it is working because he got to etch his name into the list of starters who threw a no hitter in his first Houston start. Will Harris, Chris Devenski and another newcomer, Joe Biagini, rounded out the game for good measure.
Now to update the list.
