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

Most pitches in a game this season for the Giants' Matt Moore? He had 114 for the Rays on 6/12 vs. Houston. He's at 95 through seven innings without allowing a hit at Los Angeles.

AJ Ellis did a great job in helping to develop Yasmani Grandal ability to call a game, frame pitches and block balls. Now he'll be able to do the same with Jorge Alfaro of the Phillies who they called up today. Ruiz improves the offense for the Dodgers back up catcher but they lose a significant clubhouse presence in Ellis. The Dodgers by the way don't have a hit, run or win since they made the trade.

The Giants' Matt Moore has a no-hitter through seven innings against the Dodgers at Los Angeles. He has thrown 95 pitches and has six strikeouts with the walks.

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.

A man of the people, A.J. Ellis even thanked the media before departing the Dodgers for his new gig with the Phillies: "You have treated me so fair," he said. "The members of the media have made me look and sound better than I really am. I'm really thankful for you guys. You guys deserve to be the voice to the fans. Hopefully more people, more future players, remember what you guys do so thank you all very much." Now that's some analysis.

After losing two games to the Orioles in the wild-card race the past two days, the Mariners need a win tonight, especially with the O's losing. But an error by Ketel Marte led to three unearned runs for the White Sox in the seventh as the Mariners have blown a 6-3 lead. You can't lose these leads and expect to make the playoffs.

Eddie Matz ESPN Senior Writer 

Max Scherzer stopped the Nats' four-game losing streak, stopped a hot-hitting Orioles team (8 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 10 K), and stopped fans from panicking with Strasburg on the DL. He even stopped a ground ball between his legs - backwards. Pretty sure that makes him a stopper.
