Blue Jays pitcher Brandon Morrow has 16 strikeouts through 8 innings, but more importantly, he's got a no-hitter and a 1-0 lead.
The Rays are coming up in the top of the ninth and I'm going to live blog this inning. Remember, there is currently only one no-hitter in Blue Jays history.
3:25 - I'm nervous. I'd love Morrow to get this, he's pitched a helluva game. Jason Bartlett is at the plate.
3:27 - Barlett has flown out to Wise. 2 outs to go. You can read all about the first no-hitter in Jays history right here.
3:29 - Ben Zobrist has a 3-0 count. Make that 4-0, he's on first. A double play right now would be sweet. C'mon Morrow!
3:30 - Carl Crawford at the plate... 0-1 count. Maybe that 0-2. Fans at the diamond formerly known as SkyDome on their feet. Crawford just hit a foul into the seats. And Snider makes the catch for the second out!
3:32 - Evan Longoria is at the plate, and Morrow needs one more out for the no-no. What a weekend for this team! He's 1-1... I missed Stieb's no-hitter because I was working the CNE that day. Longoria.... FUCK. He's got a base hit. You can blame this one on me, folks. That was close!
3:35 - In addition to his 1990 no-hitter, both of Stieb's last two starts in 1988 were one-hitters, with the lone single coming with 2 outs and 2 strikes in the 9th inning in each game. Tomorrow, Morrow will be perfect.
3:38 - And that's the ball game! A 1-0 victory and a 1-hitter for Morrow with 17th strikeouts. What a game, what a weekend...
