We also survey the hottest hitters of the past two weeks and examine how Texas and Pittsburgh have managed to improve their run prevention abilities more than any other team.

Last night, San Diego was threatened with a no-hitter, as Giant hurler Tim Lincecum kept them from getting a hit until the seventh inning.
Tonight, they were no-hit, by Jonathan Sanchez. It would've been a perfect game had Juan Uribe not made an error in the eighth.
So far, so obvious.
Let's walk it back a bit. When was the last time the Pads got a hit in any of the following innings? Well .
1st inning - July 2
2nd inning - July 8.
3rd inning - July 5.
4th inning - July 8.
5th inning - July 7.
6th inning - July 7.
7th inning - July 9.
8th inning - July 6.
9th inning - July 8.
Yeah, it's been over a week (with a game played every day) since their last first inning hit.
In some ways, it's worse than that. They haven't scored a first inning run in two weeks, since June 26. That was also the last time their game's lead-off hitter got a hit.
