With Mike Minor flirting with a no-hitter on Friday night, it made the group of friends I was watching the game with think….who was the last Atlanta Braves pitcher to throw a no, no??
Minor went 7 2/3 innings giving up one earned run and only one hit. He had five strikeouts on Friday and walked four.
Mike sailed into the eighth inning with a no-hitter still in tack. He was able to get the first batter out but then walked Zack Cozart. Chris Heisey then grounded out to Chris Johnson but the runner advanced to second. On a 1-2 count, Billy Hamilton broke the no, no up when he hit a bloop single to centerfield and Cozart was able to score.
“His command was outstanding, his stuff was electric,” Fredi Gonzalez said after the game. “He’s rattled off three in a row now so he’s carrying some momentum and confidence.”
Minor pitched amazing but came up short with the no-hitter. As my friends and I were counting down the outs, we were debating on when the last no-hitter was for the Atlanta Braves…or any Braves team.
Lets see if you can come up with the correct answer…
