Daily Roundup, 04/26/14

Brandon Morrow had one of the oddest pitching lines you’ll ever see: 2.2 IP, 0 H, 4 R/ER, 8 BB, 1 K.
- He was pulled while still throwing a no-hitter.
– Of course, he’d walked eight through 2.2 innings.

Bobby Abreu homer.

Minnesota was tied 2-2 with the Tigers at a point where the Twins had no hits at all.
- Phil Hughes also retired 16 straight Tigers.

Through three innings tonight, Cliff Lee has allowed eight hits, five runs, and perhaps most shocking, two walks.
- The two walks double his season total.
– He’s pitching against the Diamondbacks.
— At home. (As in, in Arizona)

    Being a Red Sox fan, I was actually listening to the radio broadcast of the Sox-Jays game. (Out of market, so using XM and therefore only able to get the Toronto feed). It sounded like Morrow might’ve been injured and that’s what was messing with his control–and led to his early exit. They also mentioned the Tigers-Twins game and suggested that the same was true of Sanchez when he exited early, although it was the first reliever, Ortega, who ended up allowing the runs without allowing a hit.

      But on the other hand, the Red Sox, like the Twins, did get their first run before getting their first hit.
      –Brandon Morrow, the starter, left the game after giving up four straight two-out walks. Chad Jenkins, the first reliever out of the bullpen, gave up two straight homers to the first two batters he faced.

        Since the start of the 2013 season, Will Middlebrooks has hit as many home runs at the Rogers Centre (5) as he has hit at Fenway Park.

    John Ryan Murphy hits his first career HR and drives in three runs.
    – Dellin Betances picked up his first win, and in perhaps the most convoluted baseball nugget I’ve ever heard, the Yankees hadn’t had a player hit his first home run and a player pick up his first career win in the same game at home since 1947.
