UPDATE: Brandon Inge delivered a pinch-hit single into left field to break up Teheran’s no-hitter with two outs in the eighth inning.

==========

Braves rookie Julio Teheran has a no-hitter through seven innings today against the Pirates.

Teheran, who ranked as a top 50 prospect coming into the season according to both Baseball America and MLB.com, has racked up 10 strikeouts while walking two. He’s at 93 pitches with six outs to go, so pitch count shouldn’t be a huge issue if he keeps being unhittable.

Teheran got off to a slow start, but has been on a major roll lately while allowing three or fewer runs in seven consecutive starts. Overall the 22-year-old right-hander had a 2.49 ERA and 32/6 K/BB ratio in 47 innings during that time, serving up just three homers.

    A no-hitter would be nice, but I hope Fredi Gonzalez doesn’t leave him too long and let his pitch count get too high just to get it. Or leave him him too long after he loses it.

    Also, I hope Fredi doesn’t give the bunt sign every time a runner gets on for the rest of the season. But that may be pushing it.

      I’m sorry that 1.0 cost your Tigers a blue ribbon at the county fair or something – but I had him in simulation leagues from 2006-2009 and all he did was hit about 100 homers for my fake teams from every tough position to get offense. Lefty killer!

      I truly hope that 2.0 doesn’t cost you anything as important as 1.0 did, whatever it was.

        Seriously, 2 errors on 1 play in the WS. That dipwad.

    The Pirates were just 1-hit a few days ago by the Reds. And that one hit came after what probably should have been a called 3rd strike.

    They better start swinging those bats, I fear that outstanding bullpen can’t hold up all year with as many innings as they’re pitching now.

    Teheran had control of his slider. Normally it breaks way off the plate if he throws it to the outside or back over the plate if he throws it inside. Today he had a less movement and better control and was getting first pitch strikes with it. Big step for a young pitcher.
