On April 19, 2010 — Two young pitchers carry no-hitters deep into their starts today. Brandon Morrow of the Blue Jays does not give up a hit to the Royals until Yuniesky Betancourt singles with two out in the 6th. Jose Bautista hits two homers and drives in five runs in an 8 – 1 win. Morrow is the third Blue Jays pitcher to start a game with five or more hitless innings this season, after Shaun Marcum on opening day and Ricky Romero a week ago. Meanwhile, in Baltimore, Doug Fister of the Mariners gives up his first hit to Nick Markakis, the first batter in the 7th inning, as Seattle jumps on Brad Bergesen to defeat the Orioles, 8 – 2.
