Surprisingly, I am talking about Rich Hill again. His composure after being hit in the throat two weeks ago prompted me to post about baseball. Now, I am compelled to mention him again because of tonight’s performance (August 23, 2017) against the Pittsburgh Pirates (61-66, 4th in National League Central ). I watch many teams and players, yet here we are again with Rich Hill.
Rich Hill (37 years old) pitched eight perfect innings. He threw nine no-hit innings. Then on his 99th pitch of the evening, and fourth pitch of the 10th inning, Pirate’s 2nd baseman Josh Harrison hit a ball deep into left field giving the Pirates a walk-off win.
The Dodgers (89-36, 1st in National League West) lost to the Pirates, 1-0.
What a time to watch baseball.
