2:57: And now it’s over for Harang too, as Logan Schafer singles up the middle to lead off the seventh. Now it’s just a regular old low-scoring game.

2:50: It’s all over for Garza, as Chris Johnson just hit a monster homer to center with two outs in the seventh. It’s 1-0 Braves. Harang’s no-no still intact.

2:46 PM: And Harang matches him with a no-no through six. Now, let’s see if the Braves try to drop a bunt on Garza. Not so much to get a hit as to get him to lose his composure again.

2:37 PM: Garza retires the Braves in order in the six.

2:31 PM: Just posting this will jinx it, but I don’t care.

Right now the Braves are playing the Brewers in Milwaukee. Aaron Harang vs. Matt Garza, and each of them has a no-hitter going through five innings. Each have allowed one walk and that’s it.

It’s a perfect storm, really. Both pitchers seem to have good stuff working today, but they also have a pretty liberal strike zone by home plate umpire Paul Schrieber. It’s also getaway day and both lineups¬†look like they have a cab waiting with the meter running.

Updates soon.
