Olsen's no-hit bid died early

There wasn't much buzz in the press box about Scott Olsen's early no-hit bid Tuesday. Olsen didn't give up a hit until the fourth when former UM hero Ryan Braun hit a one-out double.

Usually there's some chatter about a no-hit bid, and there's always a no-hit pool in the press box after the fifth inning. Ollie didn't get us that far.

Luis Gonzalez has changed the Marlins'  clubhouse with his class and leadership. It's night and day since last year. But it;s also nice to see Gonzo get a few hits. He already helped the Marlins win a game with a homer earlier this season, but has had a tough time in his role off the bench.

He had two hits in his first two at-bats Tuesday, driving in the first Marlin run with a single in the second and ripping a double in the fourth. It's still early and those two hits raised Gonzo's batting average from .226 to .250.

I can't BELIEVE only about 10,000 people were at that game last night. What a gem, and the Marlins are a great story. I wished I lived in Miami, I'd be at every game. Come on Miami, SUPPORT THE MARLINS!!!!!

Why would there be talk of a no-hitter after three innings?? Doesn't that happen like every day in the majors? Don't even bring up a no-hitter until he's through five...
