They are showing it on MLB Network.

We're jinxing it by talking about it. (Or does posting about it not count? Confused here.)

The best part was watching his dad nervously chug beer in the stands.

Congrats to Weaver but man, that 5-9 order of the Twins lineup is pretty brutal.

I only made it through the 5th inning last night. The guys on MLB Network said they had a feeling about it at that point. I had to head off to bed though. Woke up to a text message from a friend that he did it. Awesome.

Top it off with what Chipper Jones did and well, just a good night of baseball aside from the Redlegs.

Interestingly enough, Weaver's next start is scheduled to be against the Twins as well. Might be one of the better chances for back to back no-hitters we've had in a while.

2 no-hit innings against the Twins tonight to start things off for Weaver. How many more can he go? I'm sure the Twins are tired of this guy.

Erik Komatsu breaks it up in the bottom of the 3rd. Vander Meer lives on

Interesting. Back-to-back no hitters is a once in the game thing. A 2nd time is history. As a fan of the REDS and way too young to have seen Vander Meer I do not want another pitcher to do it... unless it is a REDS pitcher. I love historical MLB stuff. The Halliday no hitter in the playoffs was a once in a lifetime thing and I hated it. Perhaps I am a homer?

We sometimes think this FO and management van be bad.....and stagnant. BUT the Twins.....and the way they handled or have handled their roster and the fact that the owner sees Ron G as doing no wrong....is worse. Justin M is very injury prone....not their fault....but they have not done a good job of building that team around Mauer at all.

Perhaps? :laugh: But me, too. I really wish that. :beerme:

I feel like being a Twins or Athletics fan over the past several years has to be mind numbingly dull.

I could swear it hasn't been that long since we pointed to the Twins as a model franchise. Got ugly fast.

When you build through the farm and the farm stops producing, that will happen.

Just think, in order to break that record, you have to pitch three no-hitters in a row. :eek:

Didn't Vander Meer actually pitch another 8 hitless innings before or after his 2 no-hitters? I looked at the game logs (http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/gl.cgi?id=vandejo01&t=p&year=1938) but play-by-play is missing.

He gave up a hit with 1 out in the 4th of the 3rd game (21 no hit innings)

He pitched 5 straight complete games in that string, a 5 hitter, a 3 hitter, the two no hitters and then a 4 hitter.

Always wild he also walked 22 guys during that stretch including 8 and 7 in the last two games.

Also the Brooklyn no hitter was the first night game in their history, back then the lights were pretty bad and that in itself probably played into the event
