Default No-hitter?

When do you start worrying about a no-hitter?

No worries now as the Sox tied it up.
In answer to your question, around the 7th inning. I used to be very embarrassed if the Sox were victims of a no hitter, I cried back in 1956 when Mel Parnell of the BoSox no hit us, I was 10 years old and that was the first one, Bill Monbouquette also of the Red Sox was the next guy to no hit us in 1962, after that one I've lost track.

As I grew older, it bothered me less and less and now the loss of the game bothers me more than being no hit.
Batting in the second position for the White Sox, number 2, the second baseman Nelson Fox.

MLB now does the no-hitter/perfect game banner after a pitcher/team has completed five innings. Associated Press runs advisories after six so that editors can plan for contingencies of the possible breaking news. It isn't (at least, didn't used to be) to have a no-hitter advisory only a couple of minutes before another advisory letting the world know someone has gotten a hit.

Of course, if you believe in the jinx thing, people in newsrooms across the country are talking about the fact that pitchers are going for no hitters in the seventh. If you believe in pitch counts, you have one more reason to be skeptical.

Yeah 6th inning sounds right. The closest I've ever come to seeing the Sox get no-hit was an August 2003 game against the Anaheim Angels. They were being no-hit well into the late innings, and having not attended a no-hitter yet (subsequently I would attend Buehrle's perfect game) I kinda started cheering for the Sox to get no-hit when the Angels went up by 4 runs, which seemed insurmountable to me given the display of corpseball. Carlos Lee finally broke it up with a cheap single and I groaned.

The Sox went on to win that game. Frank Thomas hit either a walk-off or game tying home run.

6-7 inning mark. Before, I would have never thought someone would be pulled while going for a perfect game or no hitter. Now, pitch counts have changed that.
