There's not much chance that fans of Michigan Baseball will get to see a no-hitter pitched by a former Wolverines hurler...but that almost happened tonight in Pittsburgh.
Rich Hill, who pitched at Michigan through his Junior year in 2002, lost a no-hitter when he gave up a walk off home run against the Pirates in the bottom of the 10th inning Wednesday night...and lost, 1-0.
The fact that the Dodgers, the team with Baseball's Best Record, would get shout out when a Michigan alum is pitching a gem like that, well, it doesn't go unnoticed by fans of the Maize and Blue.
The last Wolverines pitcher to toss a no-hitter in the big leagues was the legendary Jim Abbott.... who put it perfectly in this tweet tonight...
Giamatti said "it's designed to break your heart" Baseball... What a game Rich Hill #GoBlue
Play Ball...and Go Blue!
