    Marlins' Sanchez notches majors' first no-no since Johnson's 2004 gem

    Holy Cow! This kid was a 22 year old rookie!! Amazing!

    MIAMI -- Anibal Sanchez was standing behind the mound when the scoreboard caught his eye, confirming what he already knew: He was one out from a no-hitter.
    He froze. For a couple of seconds, the Florida Marlins' rookie didn't move.
    "I said, 'Wow. This hitter is the last one,'" Sanchez said.
    Then he collected himself and, in this year of sensational rookies, finished up the greatest performance yet.
    The 22-year-old Venezuelan brought the longest period without a no-hitter in major league history to a close Wednesday night, benefiting from three defensive gems by teammates to lead the Marlins over the Arizona Diamondbacks 2-0.

    The only thing that is good for a rookie picture is tape on how you pitch usually your first games hitters struggle against you. With that being said Sanchez had his nastyness working (pun untended) and the hitters did not know him yet. What an unbelievable experience for the kid.

    That is truly amazing. What a breath of fresh air for the great sport of Baseball. I am proud of that kid. WAY TO GO SANCHEZ!!! A No-Hitter in Baseball is like a rare gem of a Hole In One in Golf. It is a truly remarkable accomplishment in life. I know this kid is going to savor his 15 minutes of fame.

    The other fact about this no hitter was it was only his 13th career start and his first ever complete game! Very impressive though! Didn't like that it was against the DiamondBacks, but oh well it was still impresive!
