Blue Jays starter Brandon Morrow was pulled in the third-inning with a “no-hitter” still intact. Why was he pulled with that historic streak alive? Well, he had walked eight of the 14 batters he had faced and was responsible for four earned runs.
Morrow did not get to let his “no-hitter” play out. But he did reach another milestone. He’s the first pitcher to concede eight walks in three or fewer innings since 2003.
This stat line will have baseball dorks tittering for days.
