Arizona Diamondbacks' Edwin Jackson throws no-hitter vs. Tampa Bay

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks
The Arizona Diamondbacks' Edwin Jackson has just completed what has to be one of the most taxing no-hitters in history in a 1-0 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays.

Jackson walked eight batters, hit one and threw a whopping 149 pitches as he struggled with his control all night. But luckily for him, ugly no-hitters still count.

His is the fourth no-hitter of the season. Ubaldo Jimenez (Colorado), Dallas Braden (Oakland) and Roy Halladay (Philadelphia) have also turned in hitless games -- and Armando Galarraga (Detroit) was one blown call from an umpire away.

It's the third time the Rays have been no-hit within the calendar year. Before Braden spun a perfect game against them, the White Sox' Mark Buehrle did the same last July.

In the late times, there’s a mess in the house of Diamondbacks and there still much work needed to be done so as the team could regain its real strength.
