Twins pull Joe Ryan from no-hit bid after 7 innings


The Minnesota Twins elected to pull rookie starter Joe Ryan from his outing despite having a no-hitter through seven innings against the Kansas City Royals on Tuesday night. Ryan was cruising, but his pitch count was at 106 when Twins manager Rocco Baldelli decided to call it quits, though history was on the line. It isn't the first time we've seen this in the 2022 campaign, dating back to April 13 when Los Angeles Dodgers starter Clayton Kershaw had an even better thing going for himself, a perfect game through seven innings with 13 strikeouts against the Twins.
