Sportsman of the Week Ending 6/15/2015

An amazing amount of sports this week, but one player leaped from obscurity to grab the headlines.  San Francisco Giants pitcher Chris Heston did what no other pitcher has done this year.  Threw a no-hitter.  The 27-year-old rookie in just his 12th career start dominated the (first place) New York Mets lineup on Tuesday for 9 IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 11K, and an unusual 3 HBP.  In a manageable 110 pitchers.  He also racked up 2 hits himself and 2 RBI in a 5-0 Giants win.  It was the fourth straight season that a Giants pitcher has tossed a no-hitter (Cain 2012, Lincecum 2013 and 2014).  Heston is our improbable Sportsman of the Week!
