Scratch that: Joe Saunders no longer has a perfect game going against the Blue Jays

UPDATE: Never mind. Sixth inning and Adeiny Hechavarria hit a single off of him and then Rajai Davis walked. Still. Whatever.

2: 44 PM: No, I don’t think this will last because it’s Joe Saunders, but it says an awful lot about the state of the Blue Jays that Mr. Saunders has thrown five perfect innings against them. The Orioles lead 3-0.

Saunders was unimpressive for the Diamondbacks this year and was shelled in his first outing for the Orioles, but today the Jays are making him look like, well, I was going to insert the name of some crazy awesome pitcher, but then I see that Saunders only has one strikeout, so it’s not like he’s dominating or anything.

    I thought one of the unwritten rules of baseball is that if a guy has a no-hitter going you don’t blog about it.

      Nope. Save the superstitions for little children.

        I’m going to chalk the perfect-o being broken up to Joe Saunders being Joe Saunders. But still, that was eerie timing dude.

    Meanwhile….. Medlen is mowing down Rockies batters. 6INN 67Pitches. On pace to pitch a Maddux.

      What is a Maddux? A game in which 5 or more pitches 3 inches off the plate get called strikes?

        Averaging 10 pitches an inning or less, I believe. Or it might just be complete game in less than 100 pitches.
