Stealing Signals: 15 Straight No-Hit Innings

Cubs 6, Astros 1 – Ted Lilly decided to try and follow up Carlos Zambrano’s no-no with one of his own, getting 6.2 innings of no hit ball before giving up a hit to Mark Loretta.  Homers from Jim Edmonds, Derrek Lee, and Geovany Soto provided the muscle on offense. You have to feel for the Astros, though — that’s a situation (playing in Milwaukee, a short drive from Chicago, with all their families in Houston) that they shouldn’t have been in.

Dodgers 8, Pirates 2 – Hiroki Kuroda throws seven shutout innings while Manny Ramirez has three hits and James Loney drives in two.

Diamondbacks 3, Giants 1 – That Adam Dunn trade is now providing some actual impact with an eighth inning two-run shot to make the difference (and maybe quite a few games too late.)

Yankees 4, White Sox 2 – Mariano Rivera enters second place on the all-time saves list behind Trevor Hoffman. A double by Wilson Betemit broke the tie game in the seventh.

Red Sox 13, Rays 5 – Six homers off the Tampa pitching staff provided one hell of a margin, and pushes Daisuke Matsuzaka to a record of 17-2 despite being one of the most on again, off again pitchers — he has had the luxury of getting good offensive support.

Nationals 7, Mets 2 – Watch it all go down the drain. The lead over the Phillies is now half a game, Pedro Martinez gives up four runs in six innings and the heart of the order (Beltran, Wright, Delgado) go 0-for-11.
