That’s the question being asked (again) by many baseball fans at the moment and Ervin Santana and Jason Hammel almost gave two more reasons to believe in the idea yesterday. Both took no-hitters into the seventh inning and while their bids faltered there, they ended up with one-hitters and gave their teams a great platform to add another win to their tallies.
As per normal on a Sunday, all but one of the scheduled MLB games will start before midnight UK time and, who knows, we might just see another no-hit bid develop over the course of the evening.
