No reports for a couple of days. I am out of town beginning Friday afternoon, returning Sunday afternoon.

Ok, time to report on baseball with no brawls.

AAA: 2B Starlin Castro and 1B Greg Bird, both on rehab, hit back-to-back HRs in SWB’s (81–49) 8-3 win on Thursday. Castro was 2 for 4 with the solo HR. Bird was 1 for 3 with two walks. Also hitting a HR was DH Ji Man Choi. CF Mason Williams 2 hits, 2 RBI. LF Jake Cave 2 hits, RBI (hitting over .340). RF Mark Payton 2 hits, and C Eddy Rodriguez 2 hits, RBI.

Jordan Montgomery was pulled because of pitch count/innings limitations. It is no coincidence he is lined up on the same day with Garcia (who has been disappointing so far) so we’ll see what happens when rosters expand September 1.

I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention last night’s Dodgers/Pirates game. Dodger pitcher Rich Hill took a perfect game into the ninth and lost that when his 3b made an error. Then he lost the no-hitter and the game when he gave up a HR to the first Pirates’ batter, Josh Harrison, in the bottom of the tenth. 1-0 Pirates. Ouch.

From MLB.com:

Harrison is the first player in Major League history to break up a no-hitter with an extra-inning, walk-off homer.

Hill is the second pitcher to lose a no-hitter on a walk-off hit — and should’ve been the second to lose such a game on a walk-off homer, instead of the first. In 1959, the Pirates’ Harvey Haddix carried a perfect game into the 13th inning against the Braves in Milwaukee. After Felix Mantilla reached on an error to end the perfecto in the bottom of the 13th, Hank Aaron was walked intentionally. Joe Adcock slugged what should have been a walk-off homer, but Aaron, after touching second and seeing that Mantilla had crossed the plate, left the basepaths. Adcock passed Aaron and was called out. National League president Warren Giles ruled that Mantilla’s run counted, Adcock was awarded a double, and the game was over, a 1-0 Braves victory.
