What the Eck Was That? Talking 'No Hitter' While One Was in Progress?

"He was throwing strike one when he was throwing offspeed. Just hitting corners. It seemed like he really never missed over the middle. With his stuff, he's got enough velocity where he can miss over the middle a couple times and still get away with it. I don't think he gave too many guys any easy looks." -- Mike Lowell, really impressed with Josh's outing
