Sanchez barely makes it past the seventh inning stretch

Anibal Sanchez is done for the night. He leaves with two runners on and one out in the bottom of the seventh inning.The Orioles got to him for seven hits and three runs. It’s a quality start for Sanchez, par for the course for teams facing the Birds.

What wasn’t par for the course in 2006 was a no-hitter. Sanchez’s no-no on Sept. 6 of that year against Arizona ended the longest no-hitter drought in Major League Baseball history; there had been 6,364 consecutive major-league games without a no-hitter following Randy Johnson’s perfect game on May 18, 2004.

There have already been three no-hitters in 2010: Dallas Braden’s perfect game on May 9, Roy Halladay’s perfect game on May 29, and Ubaldo Jimenez’s no-hitter on April 17. And then of course there’s Armando Gallaraga, who should have had a perfect game on June 2.
