Matthew Boyd took a no-hitter into the top of the ninth today against the Chicago White Sox, with the Tigers winning 12-0. Boyd had allowed one base-runner all day, on a third inning walk. Adam Engel led off the bottom of the ninth with a pop out to third; Kevan Smith, hitting for Rob Brantly, grounded out to short. That brought White Sox leadoff hitter Tim Anderson to the plate. Anderson, the asshole, did this:
Dammit. Listen, dumbass White Sox: you are shit. Your season is pointless. We don’t need you out here breaking up no-hitters in otherwise perfectly meaningless September baseball games. No. What we need, instead, is for otherwise perfectly meaningless September baseball games to feature no-hitters. You take your two-out double and go to hell.
Boyd got Yoan Moncada to ground out for the final out a batter later. Thanks for nothing, White Sox.
