No-no hard to handle for hitting coach Hansen
SEATTLE -- How does the hitting coach handle it when his hitters get no-hit?

"I took it pretty hard," Dave Hansen said of Friday night's six-pitcher no-hitter the Mariners threw at the Dodgers.

"I tossed and turned all night, just like when I was a player. It's the part of the game people don't get to see. The ups and downs, to battle and not get one hit. It meant a sleepless night."

And that comes from the hitting coach of baseball's winningest club, with a .264 team average that is third in the National League.

"It's a very humbling game," Hansen said. "It was a tough night and it really wasn't our night."
