Justin Verlander almost throws a no-hitter


He was THAT close.

Justin Verlander just misses out on a no-hitter. However, the Mets have successfully thrown a no-pitcher against the Jays.

In honor of Verlander’s near no hitter Tweeps have hashtagged his name and it’s trending worldwide.

#VERLANDER incredible. We are lucky to see this guy pitch. Great game.

I don't think anyone will ever break Nolan Ryan's record of 7 no hitters. #Verlander is awesome but Ryan was…well Nolan Ryan. #RyanExpress

#Verlander loses his no hitter to some guy named Josh Harrison who will never be confused with Josh Hamilton

Losing a no-no in the 9th has got to be one of the most bittersweet games for a pitcher. #Verlander #MLB
