Morrow falls one out shy of no-no
By: DJ Bean

Blue Jays right-hander Brandon Morrow became the second pitcher this season to have a no-hit bid broken up with two men out in the ninth inning Sunday when Rays third baseman Evan Longoria reached on an infield single. Morrow came back to strike out Dan Johnson to end the game, capping an electrifying 17-strikeout performance in a 1-0 Blue Jays win.

 

Morrow, who improved to 9-6 with the victory, threw 137 pitches on the day and walked two batters. It was the first complete game of the 26-year-old's career. Prior to Sunday, the deepest Morrow had pitched into a game this season was eight innings, a feat accomplished in a 5-0 victory over the Cardinals on June 24.

 

The one-hitter was the 19th in Blue Jays history. There have been five no-hitters in the majors this season, including two perfect games. In coming one out shy, Morrow joins Tigers starter Armando Galarraga as the only pitchers to do so this season. Galarraga was...

Delgado: I didn't sign to 'embarrass myself'
By: DJ Bean

PAWTUCKET, R.I. -- Newly signed first baseman Carlos Delgado wrapped up his first workout as a member of the Red Sox organization Sunday. After stretching out along the third baseline, Delgado and Red Sox first base prospect Lars Anderson took ground balls at first base. Delgado then fielded some more ground balls from his knees, followed by questions from onlooking reporters.

 

Coming off two hip surgeries, the 38-year-old Delgado signed a minor league deal on Saturday and will eventually join a Red Sox team that has been bitten quite badly by the injury bug. Anticipated to split time with Mike Lowell at first base, Delgado stressed that he himself feels healthy enough to make a difference down the stretch.

 

"I'm not going to come here to embarrass myself," Delgado said. "I wasn't going to call anybody and say I'm ready to work out if I couldn't run, if I couldn't run the bases, if I couldn't change...

Report: Pats have 'strong' interest in Schobel

The Patriots have "strong" interest in pass rusher Aaron Schobel, but the former Bill is seeking "big" money, according to Comast's Mike Giardi. (Giardi quotes a source as saying Schobel's situation isn't like that of Junior Seau, who a contract that was below market value to come out of retirement and play for New England.) Schobel, who became available last week when he was released by Buffalo, is one of the best pass rushers currently available — the 32-year-old had 78 sacks over the last nine years with the Bills.

Ortiz on strike zone: 'It was a joke'

NEW YORK -- Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz could muster nothing against Yankees starter CC Sabathia on Saturday, going 0-for-4 with three strikeouts (two called) and a double play in Boston's 5-2 loss to New York. Yet while Ortiz gave some credit to the Yankees ace, he also made no secret about his displeasure with the strike zone of home plate umpire Jerry Layne.

 

"It was a joke," said Ortiz. "The fact is that on top of [Sabathia] being that good, he’s got [an ump] calling all kinds of [expletive]. That made him better.

 

"I didn’t see that many strikes that I can hit," Ortiz added. "Swinging at all kinds of [expletive]. That’s what you’ve got to do. Swing, swing, swing, swing and good luck."
