I'm from Houston, a graduate of the University of Texas, a fan of the Houston Astros and Houston Texans. But this blog will be about the "greater sports", whatever that means.

Sportsman of the Week Ending 6/22/2015

Another week and another no-hitter.  Almost perfect game.  Washington Nationals ace Max Scherzer baffled the Pittsburgh Pirates 26-up, 26-down through the first 8 2/3 innings on Saturday.  Then after a hit by pitch (he leaned his elbow in), the 27th out secured the no-no.  Ten strikeouts and 106 pitches. This was coming off a complete game shutout with just one hit and one walk.  So total over the last two outings.  2-0, 18 IP, 1 H, 1BB, 1 HBP, 26 strikeouts.  Some are calling it the best two-game stretch in pitching history.  Certainly worthy of the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
