On the Giants podcast with Michael:

#1 After may five no hitters in baseball you might question that’s a lot but after seven and if the San Francisco Giants Kevin Guasman was able to keep the Cincinnati Reds off base on Wednesday night that might have been the eighth no hitter of the season.

#2 At the pace of no hitters being pitched there could be up to 20 no hitters thrown by the end of June.

#3 One of the top reasons brought up why there are so many no hitters is the league batting average is .236 going into Wednesday’s games with 12 MLB teams hitting an average of .240.

#4 Is the other part of the reason why there are so many no hitters is that the pitching is better and ball is not as tight as it was.

#5 The Seattle Mariners have been struggling at the plate needless to say and have been no hit twice already is less than a week.
