Atlanta Braves rookie Julio Teheran came four outs from a no-hitter on Wednesday. He threw 7 2/3 hitless innings against the Pirates before Brandon Inge lofted a single down the left field line to break up his attempt at immortality. It would have been the first no-hitter by a rookie since Clay Buchholz in September of 2005. Teheran still earned the win for the Braves in Atlanta's sweep completing 5-0 victory, but his dominance wasn't even the best perfomrance by a rookie pitcher this year; that honor still belongs to Shelby Miller of the Cardinals, who one hit the Rockies last month while striking out 13 in a complete game win. PIC OF THE DAY Jose Altuve is either trying to turn a double play, or pull off some sweet ballet moves. (Thomas Campbell-USA TODAY Sports) Game of the Day: White Sox 7, Mariners 5 (16 innings). This is one of those wacky games that you really just can't believe happened unless you watched it live. Neither team scored a run through the first 13 innings of play, but Chicago got on the board in the 14th with a five spot off of Seattle relievers Danny Farquhar and Hector Noesi. White Sox manager Robin Ventura brought in closer Addison Reed in the bottom of the inning to close out the game in the non-save situation, and Reed proceeded to allow five runs of his own, topped off by a Kyle Seager grand slam to tie the game. After a scoreless 15th, Chicago struck again in the 16th against Noesi, plating a pair of runs. In the bottom of the 16th, Reed struck out the side swinging to preserve the win...a win that could have been had two innings earlier if not for Reed. Oh bother. Pitching Lines of the Day: Julio Teheran was obviously the star of the day. In Atlanta's 5-0 win over the Pirates, Teheran allowed just one run in eight scoreless innings, striking out 11 and walking only two. RA Dickey looked like the Dickey of old in Toronto's 4-0 win in San Francisco, allowing just two hits in 8 1/3 shutout frames, striking out five and walking a pair. Hisashi Iwakuma was awesome for the Mariners in that marathon loss to the White Sox, throwing eight shutout innings and allowing three hits, walking none and punching out five. Cole Hamels dominated the Marlins in Philly's 6-1 win, giving up one run on four hits in seven innings, striking out 11 and walking one. Finally, Rays starter Alex Cobb led his team to a 3-0 win in Detroit, giving up five hits over 7 2/3 innings, walking three and striking out seven. Hitting Lines of the Day: Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki powered the Rockies to a huge 12-4 win in Cincinnati, with Gonzalez going 3/5 with three homers and six RBI, and Tulowitzki going 5/5 with three runs, three RBI, and two homers. Marlon Byrd led the Mets to a 10-1 romp in Washington, going 2/4 with three runs, three RBI, a walk, and two homers. The aforementioned Kyle Seager finished his night by going 3/5 with two walks, a double, and that game-tying grand slam. Finally, Howie Kendrick and Mark Trumbo played well for the Angels in their 8-6 loss to the Cubs, with Kendrick going 4/5 with two runs, two RBI, and a homer, and Trumbo going 2/4 with a walk and a pair of solo homers. Other Games: CC Sabathia threw a complete game for the Yankees in their 6-4 win over the Indians. The Rangers edged the Red Sox 3-2. The Brewers fell to the A's 6-1. The Royals finally got a home win, besting the Twins 4-1. The Astros homered six times in an 11-7 win over the Orioles. What You Missed: Our staff broke down Biogenesis with a roundtable.
