The hottest team in baseball got cooled off today by Anibal Sanchez, who threw a one-hitter at AT&T Park. Even Buster Posey was denied--his hit streak was stopped at 21 when he went 0-3 with two strikeouts and a ground ball double play. It was the 20th start for the 26-year-old righthander from Venezuela, the most in one season of his short, injury-plagued career. Sanchez is finally delivering the goods for Florida this year (2.3 WAR). He threw a no-hitter as a 22-year-old rookie in 2006.
Sometimes Lex Luthor gets a hold of some kyrptonite and slows down Superman. That's what happened today. Tomorrow will be another story. Too bad we wasted a quality start from MadBum.
