More highlights for the 2014 TWJ set

Hamels No Hitter

Yesterday’s combined no-hitter by four Philadelphia pitchers brings the total of 2014 TWJ highlights cards to twelve so far, with a thirteenth scheduled to be added later tonight/early tomorrow morning. Cole Hamels and the Philadelphia bullpen threw the eleventh combined no-hitter in MLB history; the first combined no-hitter occurred in 1917 when Babe Ruth and Ernie Shore shut down the Washington Senators without a hit. Interestingly, Ruth only pitched to one batter, and was ejected from the game for arguing balls and strikes after that batter walked; the batter was subsequently thrown out trying to steal, and Shore retired the next 26 batters without incident.
