UPDATE: Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman doubled with one out in the eighth, breaking up Johnson's no-hit bid. Following the hit, Johnson was taken out of the game, having thrown 109 pitches. He allowed one hit, walked three and struck out nine.

UPDATE: Johnson is hitless through seven, striking out Dan Uggla and Jason Heyward in the seventh. He now has nine strikeouts and 102 pitches.


Josh JohnsonFlorida's Josh Johnson has held the Braves hitless through six innings and the Marlins lead 5-0.

Johnson has thrown 97 pitches, which could become a factor as things go along. He's walked three batters and struck out seven, including Chipper Jones looking to end the sixth inning.

For good measure, Johnson has a hit of his own, singling in a run as part of a three-run second inning. That was one of seven hits, Tim Hudson has allowed in his six innings of work.

Johnson's never thrown a no-hitter. The longest he's ever gone is 6 2/3 against the Rockies on Aug. 14, 2009.

No-hitter alert: Freeman breaks up Johnson's bid

Not only that, the story is inconsistent.  No hitter "through seven".  Pulled in the 7th with one out.  Struck out two batters in the 7th.  What's the deal?

Doesn't anyone proof read anything anymore?  Can anyone be a writer?  It sure seems in this day and age that proper grammer is being thrown out the window in order to be the first to write a story.  On top of that, all these "stories" are mostly non-stories.  I just don't get it.
