>Two of baseball’s self-proclaimed underachievers met at Wrigley Field for ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball… on Sunday night (in case you didn’t catch that part).  The underachievers set out to overachieve, and did exactly what you would expect an underachiever to do… they fell short.

White Sox pitcher Gavin Floyd took a no-hitter into the seventh inning before giving up a two-out double to Alfonso Sorry-ano Soriano.  And he was met out for out by Cubs pitcher Ted Lilly, who carried his no-no into the 9th inning before giving up a lead-off, pinch-hit single to Juan Pierre.  That’s right, speaking of underachievers, guys hitting .274 and .245 busted up no-hitters tonight.

When asked how it felt to break up a no-hitter in the 9th, Juan Pierre answered, “Très bien. Je déteste ces oursons.”  Don’t we all, Pierre.  Don’t we all…
