"Can all of that put Musgrove’s name alongside Johnny Vander Meer’s tonight, facing his old team in his old home ballpark? The Pirates are one of the worst teams in baseball, but maybe not as prone to being no-hit as you might think. They’re sixth in the NL with a .238 batting average -- roll that sentence around in your brain for a minute -- with the tenth-best strikeout rate. They’re sixth in BA against right-handers."
