gridlore: Doug looking off camera with a grin (Baseball - Lefties rule)
Jonathon Sanchez has just thrown the first no-hitter for the Giants since John "The Count" Montefusco had his on September 29th, 1976. The only thing preventing a perfect game was an error in the eighth inning.

What makes this more amazing? Sanchez has never before thrown a complete game at any professional level. This was his first start after a demotion to the bullpen after several very bad starts, he was 2-8 going into this game. The best part? His father was in the stands. He had never seen his son pitch as the starter in a live game before.
