so who gets the game ball?
Q: How many Astros pitchers does it take to throw a no=hitter?
No, there's no real punchline and it's not even a joke.
Normally, when you are watching a no-hitter unfold, you watch in awe. You marvel at the pitcher's skill, no matter which team you are rooting for. It's a thrilling, dramatic thing to watch a no-hitter unfold before your eyes.
Except for last night. I would venture to say it was more a case of the Yankees having absolutely nothing at the plate than any of the Astros pitchers being masterful. It was sort of like watching a really bad movie just because you need to see the ending, no matter how ridiculous it will be.
And ridiculous it was. Six pitchers combine to keep the Yankees hitless. At Yankee Stadium.
It was an ugly night in baseball. (Except for the part where the Yankees management left a bottle of champagne in front of the lockers of each of the six pitchers.)
