Matt Moore has a no-hitter through 8 innings with 119 pitches and now the question is will MGR Bruce Bochy let him finish it or take him out because of pitch count. 4-0 Giants after 8

I meant 7.1 innings. But now Moore is through eight innings! And 119 pitches. Tough call for Bochy in the ninth. I'd let him start and see if he can get a quick inning. He threw 24 pitches in the eighth, which included a walk. Drama at Dodger Stadium!

No team has ever had a no-hitter in five consecutive seasons. Giants have had one each of the last four seasons (Cain, Lincecum, Lincecum, Heston). Dodgers are the only other team to have one in four straight seasons (all Koufax from '62-'65). H/T @waynerandazzo

Tough three days for the Mariners as they lose two at home to the Yankees and blow a 6-3 lead tonight against the White Sox on the road. The bullpen just isn't good enough. They're now 51-11 when leading after six innings (.836), below the MLB average of .868. But they're 5-11 when tied after six.
