Losing a a perfect game or a no-hitter in the 10th inning of a scoreless game has to be the most heartbreaking experience for a pitcher. I’d rather give up a walk-off grand slam in a three-run game than lose like Rich Hill did on Wednesday night. There can’t be anything worse than being almost perfect, and still losing.
Obviously, it reminded me of Pedro’s night in San Diego in 1995. Though at least Pedro got some run support in the top of the 10th inning and still got the win.
