There’s a few things I don’t get about baseball. One is the closer. Why do they need another pitcher to come in when one pitcher has been doing fine the whole game? Ervin Santana of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim made my dream come true today and proved that a pitcher can throw a whole game. He was still throwing 95 MPH fastballs in the 9th inning. *pats him on the back*
Then I realized the second biggest thing that I don’t understand about baseball: what the hell is a no hitter? The game ended on a fly ball, which was caught, and then Santana was awarded his “no-hitter.” Wait, hold on, what? The game ended on a hit. I get the technicalities of it all, but the name is entirely misleading. One more reason that I’ll never be able to fully get into baseball.
Nonetheless, a giant congrats to Ervin Santana on a riviting no-hitter!
