    Funny, I looked back at Homer's first no-hitter, and I didn't start the thread (that credit goes to cumberlandreds) but I provided the PBP in a thread completely dead for the first 7 innings.

    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Just always remember who got it all started.

    I was thinking, that for all the hoopla of last night I believe I would have traded that for a win last October in game 3,4 or 5 against these same Giants.

    The play by Votto was fascinating. If he fires across the infield and doesn't get the runner, I assume it would have been scored a hit??? However, with a home scorer, and the game in "no-hitter mode" was there anyway it could have been ruled a FC without an out? I heard two different talking heads speak of there being "no great defensive play in the game". I disagree.

    Fielder's choice is defined in MLB Rule 2, "Definitions", as "the act of a fielder who handles a fair grounder and, instead of throwing to first base to put out the batter-runner, throws to another base in an attempt to put out a preceding runner." FC is recorded for the batter-runner if he reaches first base safely regardless of whether the attempt to put out the other runner(s) is successful. A batter who reaches first base safely as the result of a fielder's choice is not credited with a hit or a time on base.
    So, in a word, no. He would not be credited with a hit. At least that is how I am reading this rule.
    Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!

    I understand the rule, but I think it's the scorer's discretion whether to rule it a hit if they believe the runner would have been safe anyways. I'm probably wrong though.

    No, I think you are probably correct. The official scorer has some discretion. I think it would have to be pretty clear cut though. Especially at home, late in the game, with a no-hitter going on.

    I was at the beach and didn't get to watch the game but I followed along on my phone. Congrats to Homer on his second no-hitter! What a game. I really hope the Reds find a way to sign him long-term.
    I miss Adam Dunn.
