In a surreal night in Tampa, a rookie making his major league debut had a no-hitter through six innings, while the reigning Cy Young Award winner ended with a complete game and under 90 pitches. In the middle of it, was another amazing catch by Houston Astros CF Brandon Barnes on a ball hit by Tampa Bay Rays catcher Jose Molina destined for the gap. It preserved rookie Jarred Cosart’s no-hitter for the moment, and even fooled announcers and the camera man as it went down as they thought RF J.D. Martinez snagged it. Watch (courtesy of MLB.com)
I do think the correct scoring is “9-8 PO”. And the rookie Cosart beat the veteran David Price, 2-1.
