Cecil holding ’em hitless

by Bill Chuck on June 20, 2013

Blue Jays lefty reliever Brett Cecil has not allowed a hit since May 28, a club-record span of 38 batters. With his second out last night, Cecil broke David Cone’s record of 36 set back in June 1995.

On May 28, Cecil pitched two innings against the Braves. In his first inning he gave up a leadoff single to Andrelton Simmons and then did not allow another hit, striking out the last four batters he faced.
