Sanchez stunner

A night after The Franchise carried a no-hitter into the 7th, Jonathan Sanchez showed why you truly never know in baseball. What a stunner to know-it-all folks like me, who believed a week or two ago that Sanchez might as well go figure it out in Fresno.

Credit 11 strikeouts, a great catch by Rowand in the 9th, inspired pitch-calling by Eli Whiteside and some apparently great coaching by Dave Righetti that has helped Sanchez regain that elusive pitch command that has often vanished. On the postgame TV interview, as best as I could tell, Sanchez said that Rags had worked with him to slow down his lower body.

The interviewer also asked his father -- who apparently hadn't seen him pitch in the bigs previously -- what he thought. "Dios es grande," was the reply.

And the Mets still have never had a no-hitter in their history.
