Myers bottom 1.  Hit, walk, RBI double over Lee.  Runners left stranded at 2nd and 3rd after three pop outs.  1-0 Bags after 1

It's 10:15p out here.  Why is the Astros game in the 2nd inning?

Pence singles into RF as well.  1st and 2nd for Lee, who hit a laser in the 2nd.

... but he pops out to 3rd.  2-1 middle of 5

The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.

THIS GUY IS FROM QUEENS.

Back when I lived in New York a couple of bandmates and I would hang out regularly after practice and so on. One guy, douchey, fucking stupid, former pro tennis player, now a pro poker player or at least pretending to be, lived with his parents in Bayside Queens. He drove a blue Hyundai and used to ferry us around. The other guy, Todd, was and still is a good friend of mine. He called me tonight in fact to tell me about some recent and rather startling business success.

Anyway, Douche Boy, let's call him Logan, figured out that if he drove around honking at the hot chicks strutting down the avenue that he could pretty well mortify Todd and me. So of course he did it all the fucking time. I'd slink down as low as I could in the seat as the chicks shot daggers in through the windows.

One balmy night Todd hit on a brilliant solution. We had the windows down, driving down Second Avenue in the East Village. Logan starts honking at the hot chicks who are needless to say everywhere. Todd thrusts his upper torso through the window and gestures wildly at Logan through the windshield screaming THIS MOTHERFUCKER'S FROM QUEEEENS!

And that, friends, was the end of the honking.

So lil 94CG#2 has a question. If a pitcher walks one batter during a game and that batter manages to score, but none of the other batters hit the ball and get on base, is it a no-hitter?

It's a no hitter, but not a perfect game (and his scoring is irrelevant, regardless)

That's *mostly* correct.  To be credited with a no-hitter, a pitcher has to record at least 27 outs.  So if a visiting pitcher doesn't allow a hit, but allows a run, and his team doesn't score and loses 1-0 in 8 1/2 innings, it's not a no-hitter.
The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.

It's still a no-hitter, regardless of what MLB recognizes.

I'm not sure how Haddix got screwed...he gave up a hit; hence, it's not a no-hitter.

Haddix got screwed because he completed the first 12 innings of perfect ball and had it recognized by MLB as a no-hitter for about 30 years before they decided to change their mind.

But the future has to change - and to change I've got to destroy
Oh look out Lennon here I come - land ahoy-hoy-hoy

Only for 2 classes one summer.  They were the only school in Texas offering Physical Chemistry I and II that summer.
