SJ - August 9, 2020
San Francisco pitcher Johnny Cueto took a no-hitter against the Los Angeles Dodgers into the 6th inning on Saturday night. He lost it in the worst possible way.
Giants leftfielder Hunter Pence lost the ball and had it drop over his head for a hit.

It's an absolutely brutal way to give up a hit, but Cueto 100% deserved to lose the no-hitter. He does that thing with his windup where it varies from pitch to pitch and that's bullshit.
In fact on the pitch he gave up the hit on, Cueto almost fell over. Cut that shit out and throw the ball.
Cueto would end up giving up four runs on two hits in the 5-4 win over the Giants. I'd feel sorry for him if he didn't pitch like an asshole.
