Julio Teheran loses his no-hitter with two out in the seventh

UPDATE: In the seventh, Teheran got Jay Bruce to pop out, struck out Yoenis Cespedes and then . . . Asdrubal Cabrera golfed a clean double down the right field line. Oh well. The game is still pretty fun. At least if you’re not a Mets fan.

3:04 PM: I’m watching the dang game and I didn’t realize until a few moments ago, but Braves starter Julio Teheran is no-hitting the New York Mets through six innings of their game at Citi Field this afternoon.

The reason I didn’t notice it was because I’m still reeling from the murder spree I’ve been witnessing this afternoon. The murder is of the Mets pitching staff by the Braves hitters. As I type this it’s 11-0 in the top of the seventh. Kurt Suzuki, Ronald Acuña, and Ozzie Albies all have homers and Nick Markakis is 3-for-3 with three RBI. It’s been like batting practice. They just chased Matt Harvey, who gave up five runs in two innings of work. Part of me wonders if that’s the last work Harvey ever gets as a Met.

As for Teheran, he’s only at 71 pitches though sixth and has walked only one guy and has struck out five. We’ll keep you posted.

Apparent roster snafu changes Blue Jays pitching plans

ATLANTA — An apparent roster snafu forced the Toronto Blue Jays to change their pitching plans for Thursday night’s game at the Atlanta Braves.

After Nate Pearson gave up three runs in five innings, manager Charlie Montoyo brought in right-hander Jacob Waguespack to open the sixth.

As Waguespack walked to the mound, he was greeted by home plate umpire Alan Porter, who apparently delivered some bad news: The right-hander wasn’t on the 28-man active roster for the game.

The Blue Jays optioned Waguespack and infielder Santiago Espinal to the team’s alternate training site on Thursday to reach the 28-man roster limit.

Montoyo told reporters before the game Waguespack had been recalled when right-hander Trent Thornton was placed on the 10-day injured list with right elbow inflammation. That move apparently was not processed, leaving Waguespack off the active roster.

Waguespack walked to the dugout and Montoyo brought in Rafael Dolis as the official replacement for Pearson.
