UPDATE: Edwin Jackson throws no-hitter

Jun 25, 2010, 9:59 PM EDT

UPDATE: Jackson did it! He walked eight and needed 149 pitches to get there, but he has successfully completed the fourth no-hitter of the 2010 season.

Also, Jackson is the first pitcher to throw 140 pitches in a game since Livan Hernandez threw 150 (!) on May 3, 2005. Somebody get this guy some ice.

9:41 PM: Jackson has made it through eight innings without allowing a hit. Carlos Pena reached base on a fielding error by Stephen Drew with one out and was replaced by Carl Crawford as a pinch-runner. Crawford was caught stealing for the third out of the inning.

By the way, Jackson is now at 134 pitches. This is awkward.

9:19 PM: Just another day in the “Year of the Pitcher.” Okay, not really.

Sure, Edwin Jackson has a no-hitter through seven innings against the Rays on Friday night. That’s certainly an accomplishment, especially against his former team. But in doing so, he has walked seven batters. Seven. Oh, and he also hit a batter.

He has thrown just 62 of 118 pitches for strikes. I know we’re supposed to be impressed by a no-hitter and all, but seriously, this just isn’t very good.

Stick around to see if A.J. Hinch gives him a chance to make, um, history.

    Great article. All of those words and yet no mention of what team this guy plays for. I haven’t followed baseball in years so I have no idea.

    Look at the picture and you can clearly see what team’s hat he’s wearing. And if you can’t tell by the picture, why are you even on here?

    Not everybody loads the graphics, and there are visually impaired users that use screen readers. Putting the team names in the post is not an unreasonable request.
