Ted Lilly almost sent the world spinning wildly off its axes this afternoon when he carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning.
See, his teammate Carlos Zambrano didn't give up any hits last night. No team has every thrown back-to-back no-hitters. The St. Louis Browns came close in 1917 by tossing no-no's on consecutive days. Nice try, guys.
Sadly, journeyman Mark Loretta drove a single into right field with two outs in the seventh inning. It's hard to be mad at Mark Loretta, but c'mon dude, we wanted to see some history.
