Well. Michael Lorenzen did not throw another no-hitter against the Nationals. In fact, he threw something that was almost the polar opposite.
Lorenzen allowed 8 hits in just 3.1 IP and 7 runs, 6 of which coming in the bottom half of an inning the Phillies scored 6 of their own in a brutal 8-7 loss. Perhaps the extended rest wasn’t as beneficial as previously thought.
