It’s an unwritten rule in baseball that if a pitcher has a no-hitter going deep in the game, no one is to say a word about it.
The official Twitter account of Major League Baseball gave followers an update of Saturday’s Boston Red Sox-Oakland Athletics game after the sixth inning.
The Red Sox responded and tried to break Manea’s no-no, but Oakland was quick to respond, keeping it simple.
It seemed to work in the A’s favor, as Manaea completed the no-hitter over Boston in Saturday’s 3-0 loss.
