Big Philly Style

Right-hander Phil Hughes had a no-no going into the 8th inning the other night in Oakland. This is the second time in three years that Big Philly Style has flirted with a no-hitter. Back in 2007 Hughes had the Texas Rangers shut down through 6 and 1/3 innings before an injury forced him off the mound. This time, Hughes lost his bid for immortality when he misplaced Eric Chavez's ball on the mound. Barring that strange play, #65 would more than likely have picked up his first no-no. Either way, Hughes fanned ten, upped his season record to 2-0, and showed everyone once and for all that he truly belongs in the rotation.

Now about that Vazquez character....
