  • Rays no hitter

    In a bullpen game, 6 Rays pitchers have combined to no hit the BoSox through 9 innings, Rays now batting in the bottom of 9th in a 0-0 game.

    EDIT in the 10th Red Sox get their first hit and take a 2-0 lead in the 10th.
    Boston's lead off hitter in the 10th was placed on second base, I thought we were back to regular baseball this year.

    EDIT Rays in the bottom of 10th win it 3-2 with a 2 run walk off homer by Kiermaier.

    It's my understanding the ghost runner was a safety measure voted on by the players and MLB due to the shortened spring training and still having 162 games this season. Next season the ghost runner will not be used.

      Wanna bet? The players want it; nobody cares what the fans want.

        This fan is OK with it, in the interest of keeping pitchers healthy.

          Doesn't really bother me either, but I do wish they'd play a few innings of regular baseball and start in the 12th with the runner on 2nd. Give the game a chance to end using regular rules before going to the gimmick.

              It's now possible for a pitcher to retire the side in order, 1-2-3, and take a loss. That's not an unlikely scenario. It's going to happen, if it hasn't happened already. Bunt the runner to third, sac fly to score him, followed by the third out.

              Also theoretically possible (although I'll concede, highly unlikely) is a pitcher losing a perfect game. That has never been possible before, but it is now.

                That only matters if you think pitchers care about who gets saddled with the loss. These days most people around the game don't really pay attention to win/loss record very much, as its considered a not very fair way to judge a player's performance. That's especially true among relievers (who would be pitching in the 10th inning). It's not as if Liam Hendriks is going to lose out on his 3rd straight "RP of the year" award (or his next contract is going to be affected) due to some extra inning losses where he did his job and the offense let him down by not countering. Blown saves would be more relevant (and he's already accumulated a few of those).

                  It matters to me because I think a team should have to win by getting men on base legitimately. To score a run without a hit, walk, or error is an abomination.

                    But it's the same for both teams, so I don't really get why people are upset about this. Both teams need to execute fundamental baseball plays in order to win the game. You still have to pitch, hit, and play defense. That team that does those things better wins. It's not like runner-on-second-with-no-outs is an uncommon baseball scenario that never comes up in a game (like a shootout in hockey/soccer).
