Outside The Confines: Padres make no-hitter history

There’s a bit of a popular narrative these days (and if a rare Pirates fan has stumbled over here, please avert your eyes and go right to the links), but people love to point out that Pirates pitchers go on to achieve great things when they leave the club.

It’s hard to say they’re wrong if you look at the post-Pirates careers of Gerrit Cole, Tyler Glasnow, Charlie Morton, and now Joe Musgrove. Musgrove made history on Friday night, as he pitched a no-hitter: the first in San Diego Padres history.

And behind the plate for Musgrove was a familiar face to Cubs fans in Victor Caratini.
