The result of these at bats shall not impact the outcome of the game, but merely serve to verify the equivalency of the "tainted" NL No No to its AL counterpart.

If any of the three additional batsmen should reach first base safely as the result of a hit, the game ends and the "tainted" NL No No shall remain tainted.

The hit that ends the game in this manner shall not be designated as a "walk off" single, but rather a "Jake off" single, the first Net54 eponym that will proudly take its place beside Tommy John's elbow."

Did you realize that I am smarter than I look (that wouldn't be difficult) and that Edison Volquez is the first pitcher to toss a no-no after undergoing Tommy John surgery?

I also was a resident with Dr. Lewis Yocum, the Angels team physician for 36 years who passed away in 2013, a year before his boss Dr. Frank Jobe, both of whom are smiling in their graves after Edison's no-no.

Now you know the rest of the story.

Correct me if I'm wrong, it seems pitching as a whole is not very good this season.

There's NO shortage of home runs being hit though. Looks like the wacky hr totals are back.

What if the pitching was so poor on the opposing side that a pinch hitter was used each time the pitcher came to bat. Would the NL No-hitter qualify as an actual No-hitter?

Yes...once you see that happen let me know. Ill also let you know when the next guy gets a cycle because he stopped at 3rd after hitting a ball over the wall so he could get a 'triple' and the elusive cycle instead of just 2 homers and double and a single...
