Sportsman of the Week Ending 5/9/2021
Two for one sale, No Hitters are cheap! I promise, my Blog isn't all about No Hitters but wow, we can't go a week without one happening. This week two, but we give the nod to the pitcher on the team who hasn't pitched one since 1969. Baltimore Orioles left handed pitcher John Means flummoxed the Seattle Mariners for no hits, no walks, and no errors over 9 innings. The sole base runner? Reached on a strikeout wild pitch. That's how close to a perfect game. The 28-year old Means is in his third year of being a workhorse starter but this was his first complete game or shutout. The Orioles have been punching bag in the rough and tough AL East but this could be a turning point for the proud franchise. John Means earns the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
