But I didn't say it that way. I said no hitter followed by perfect game because they are NOT the same thing. You can have a no hitter and not have a perfect game if your defense commits any errors or you walk or hit a batter. Sorry Jared, you are just wrong here. I figured you of all people would know the difference here. Apparently not. OH, for the record, Auburn pitchers had SEVERAL no hitters last year, but NONE were perfect games and its been noted that this was only the 2nd perfect game pitched in Auburn softball history.
Unlike a perfect game, in which no batters reach base, in regular no-hitters batters can reach base in other ways, such as a walk, an error, or a hit batsman, thus it is possible for the team pitching the no-hitter to lose.
Do you honestly believe that those pitchers that threw no hitters where their teams lost the game were also perfect games?
Oh, I'll admit when I'm wrong but this isn't one of those.
