Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?
Tony Cingrani took a no-hitter into the 7th yesterday. It was just crazy. He faced only three batters per inning until the fifth, when he walked Denny Almonte, then promptly picked him off.
His line for the game: 8.0 innings pitched, 3 hits, no walks, 15 strikeouts. Yes, 15 strikeouts.
The knock on Cingrani had been that the Reds started him too low; as a college guy from an elite baseball program like Rice's, he was more developed than the players he was facing. But he's in AA now, and still mowing 'em down.
