UPDATE, 3:34 PM: Longoria snuck a ground ball through the right side of the infield, just past a diving Aaron Hill. It actually popped out of Hill’s glove. No history today, but still a fine performance. Morrow struck out the final batter that he faced and still took home a shutout victory. Those 17 strikeouts are the most by any pitcher in a game this season.
UPDATE, 3:31 PM: Morrow got Carl Crawford to fly out to left field for the second out of the inning. He’s now one out away from history, but will have to retire Evan Longoria to make it happen.
3:28 PM: Developing story…
