It was not the most dominant effort—Liriano walked six and struck out only two—but he made the light-hitting Chicago White Sox look like Little Leaguers. The movement on his pitches didn't allow hitters to get good wood on the ball. The only real scare came from Adam Dunn when he lined out to short to end the game.
2010 saw five no-hitters, two of which were perfect games. While Roy Halladay was far from a surprise, the others were a shock. This just goes to show that it isn't just the big name pitchers who pitch their way into the record books. Honestly, who would have predicted that Dallas Braden or Edwin Jackson would be included on this list?
On any given day we could witness history. Sometimes it is a surprise who is toeing the rubber on that night or it might have been someone who you figured would accomplish the feat at some point in their careers.
