First no-hitter in the majors this year and it was a perfect game!!
Phillip Humber ( ) of the White Sox tosses it against Seattle. White Sox won 3-0.
This guy has been up and down (mostly down) between the majors and minors since 2006. Until last year when he went 9-9 with the Sox he played for the Mets, Twins, and Royals appearing in 26 games compling a record of 2 wins and 1 loss. And this was his first complete game ever. Just shows to go you.
BoSox pull off a choke for the ages: they blow a 9-0 lead and lose to the Yankees 15-9.
What's the over/under on Bobby Valentine still having a job by Memorial Day?
Anyway, looks like Hideki Matsui has found a team:
Rays expected to sign Matsui
The Rays are expected to sign former World Series MVP Hideki Matsui to a Minor League deal, according to a baseball source.
Matsui, 37, played in 141 games with the Athletics last season, hitting .251 with 12 home runs and 72 RBIs. He started just 27 games in left field, serving as the team's designated hitter 108 times and entering as a pinch-hitter in his other six appearances.
The left-handed-hitting Matsui spent his first seven Major League seasons with the Yankees with whom he was selected to two All-Star Games and won the 2009 World Series MVP. He signed as a free agent with the Angels the following season and hit .274 with 21 home runs in 145 games in his lone season with the Halos.
Yu Darvish, Rangers Shut Out Yankees: Texas Pitcher Strikes Out 10
ARLINGTON, Texas -- Yu Darvish had a season-high 10 strikeouts pitching into the ninth inning and worked out of a couple of jams for the Texas Rangers in a 2-0 victory over the New York Yankees and countryman Hiroki Kuroda on Tuesday night.
In only the seventh MLB matchup ever of Japanese starters, Darvish (3-0) allowed seven hits and walked a season-low two in 8 1-3 innings. The 10 strikeouts were the most by a Texas pitcher this season.
Ian Kinsler put the Rangers ahead to stay when he led off the first with a deep homer to left center off Kuroda (1-3), who limited Texas to two runs and five hits over 6 2-3 innings. The 37-year-old right-hander, in his fifth season in the majors, struck out five and walked one.
But Kuroda was outpitched by Darvish, the 25-year-old righty making only his fourth major league start – and getting better each time on the mound.
Rangers manager Ron Washington was going to give him a chance to finish the game but pulled Darvish after Nick Swisher's one-out single on his 119th pitch.
