Tough to Be Brandon Morrow
There’s nothing worse than losing a no-hitter or perfect game with two out in the 9th. When it happens at the hands of a seeing-eye ground ball, it’s even more painful. When it happens because the umpire blows a call, it’s excruciating. Unfortunately for Torono Blue Jays pitcher Brandon Morrow, a hit is a hit and you can’t give a player an error when they fail to make a spectacular play that would have preserved your no-no.

I’ve already heard rumblings of Aaron Hill “blowing it” and how the scorekeepers should have ruled it an error, but let’s not be ridiculous. Could Hill have made the play? He’s probably capable of it, yeah. But he didn’t in this particular instance and it would have been a great one if he did. At least Morrow can still hang his hat on 17 strikeouts in nine innings.
