NFL expert advises the Browns to execute a risky running back trade
The White Sox defeated the Twins 13-0 on Saturday. Blowing away games rarely stir up debate. but not this one.
It's possible that Minnesota's unconventional eighth-inning strategy cost Dylan Cease a no-hitter.
With two strikeouts in the seventh and eighth innings, he appeared to be getting stronger as he carried a no-hitter into the ninth. In the eighth inning, the Twins asked position player Nick Gordon to throw.
In two-thirds of an inning, Gordon gave up six runs on five hits and two walks. For Minnesota, Jermaine Palacios got the third out. The tremendous inning resulted in two goals.
Cease wasn't initially startled. He got the first two hitters for Minnesota out. Arráez Luis batted. The top hitter in the American League singled to end the no-hitter.
It's not necessary for offences to support no-hitters. Contrary. They would lose value. In 2001, San Diego Padres player Ben Davis received criticism for bunting during Curt Schilling's attempt at a perfect game.
Minnesota acted oppositely. Yes, the Twins were behind 7-0 when Gordon was asked to pitch. We've blown comparable this season.
