Aaron Harang and Matt Garza both failed at no-hitters

Mike McGinnis

Thanks a lot, you guys.

Update: Aaron Harang allowed a single to Logan Schafer to kick off the bottom of the seventh, ending our dreams of having a lovely, no-hit-filled Wednesday afternoon. Pretty selfish of both Matt Garza and Aaron Harang, really.

Star-divide

The Braves and Brewers are facing off in Milwaukee, where both starting pitchers were in the midst of no-hitters until a Chris Johnson home run ended Matt Garza's attempt. Braves' starter Aaron Harang, who didn't even join the Braves until right before spring training ended, has gone six full no-hit innings, however.

Garza had been dominant even outside of the no-hit portion of his effort, punching out seven Braves against just one walk while keeping his pitch count down and his pitches in the strike zone. All it took was one offering to Chris Johnson in the wrong place to end that, though, and put the Braves up 1-0 in the top of the seventh.

Harang hasn't been anywhere near as efficient or impressive: he's has thrown 85 pitches with three strikeouts on the day, forcing his fielders to do most of the work keeping hits off the board. The end result to this point, though, exceeds Garza's.

If you're near a computer, video game console, tablet, or hey, even your phone, the Braves-Brewers match-up just so happens to be MLB.tv's free game of the day: you have no excuses not to watch this game to the end of its potential if you can get away with putting it on.
