    They didn't even show highlights (of the last 3 batters) on ESPNNews until after the game ended. Bruce Levine of AM 1000 gave quasi-play-by-play by phone for the last two batters.

    When was the last time a guy threw a no-hitter against a guy who has a no-hitter to his credit?

    Check that. 1999.

    Jose Jimenez's no-hitter for the Cardinals on June 25 was thrown against Randy Johnson, who had thrown one in 1990 for the Mariners. (The Unit also threw another, slightly more efficient one on May 18, 2004.)

    In 1993, Bob Milacki, who started the Orioles' four-man combined no-hitter two years earlier, was on the mound for the Indians when Jim Abbott no-hit them on Sept. 4.

    You can't count Jimenez' because Johnson hadn't thrown a no-hitter when they squared off. I'll give you the first reference. Good job.

    Yes he had. I forgot about Unit's no-hitter in 1990. Check my edit.

    On the day Millwood threw his no-hitter, current Masters champion Zach Johnson was playing in a Nationwide tournament in Fort Smith, Ark. Top that. :)

    ESPN reminds us far too often. ;)

    That game was when Eric Davis' career ended (as it turned out) on a diving catch in RF to save the no-no, IIRC.

    I haven't read too many accounts of the game, but I've yet to see this fact:

    This isn't the first time Buehrle faced the minimum. He did it back in 2004 in a game against the Indians. It was a two-hit shutout... the Tribe followed up both hits by grounding into double plays.

    Wonder how many pitchers have faced the minimum twice. Can't be too many.

    Time to renegotiate.
