We just had our first no-hitter in the MLB this year, as Minnesota's Francisco Liriano held the White Sox to a big goose egg in that box after the scoring frame. As baseball fate would have it, Liriano's no-hitter is pretty surprising, all things considered.

Not that the first no-no in the bigs this season was easy, likely or anything resembling pretty. Liriano entered the contest having never thrown a complete game in his six-year career and his season ERA before the game was a chubby 9.13. He had lasted only three innings in his previous start against the Tampa Bay Rays.

My prediction for the next no-hitter in the MLB? Casey Knopik.
