I just witnessed a NO-HITTER!!!!
Our local Single-A team, the Asheville Tourists won 11-0. Bruce Billings pitched a complete game no-hitter, and I flipped my shit!

What a night!

2. I don't have any fingernails left.
He had a perfect game going into the ninth. He got one pop out. Then, he bobbled a ball, got charged with an error. Then, closed out the last two.

Helluva time.

Two homers, and two nice sacrifice bunts, as well. It is a rare year for our Tourists to do so well, they are playoff bound!

8. Box says he walked one

Still, a kid in 'A' ball walks one in nine innings? Nice!

4. My wife left to go to the bathroom
just before the ninth inning. I said, just wait. But, I couldn't tell her why. I am very superstitious about baseball.

She made it back in time to see me hugging strangers.

6. Did you hear about Ross Francis last night?
In a Single-A game (Appalachian League), the guy struck out 16 batters for Danville in six innings before the game was stopped by rain.

Not a no-hitter, but I really wish I was on hand to see that.

10. Cool. The Rockies should be promoting him soon
to AA by the end of the year, and maybe an invite to spring training for 2009.
