Orioles pitcher David Hess didn’t allow a hit over 6⅓ innings Monday night in Toronto

The Oral History of the Kevin Pillar Trade will never be written, dang it, but we can speculate as to how it went down.

The Giants acquired outfielder Pillar from the Toronto Blue Jays in exchange for infielder Alen Hanson, reliever Derek Law and prospect Juan De Paula.

So is it too much to ask that when the 25-year-old is pitching the game of a lifetime - 6 1/3 innings of no-hit ball against the Toronto Blue Jays - to leave him in?

Real Madrid 'deny interest in signing Adrien Rabiot from Paris Saint-Germain'
Rabiot hasn't featured for PSG in four months, with the Ligue 1 leaders refusing to play him while his contract situation remains unresolved.

The West Hills, California native was a key member of back-to-back postseason appearances in 2015 and 2016, and regularly filled the highlight reel with spectacular defensive plays, earning himself the nickname Superman. He batted.260 with 156 doubles, 55 home runs and 231 runs batted in across 695 career games with the Blue Jays.

Hess walked just one and had faced one batter over the minimum before being pulled after 6.1 innings.

David Hess finished his rookie season with the Baltimore Orioles with a 3-10 record and 4.88 ERA. He is 1-for-16 in his first five games this season.
