Blanco guides Prior, etc. to one-hit win

Is it a coincidence that the Cubs have three one-hit wins this year and all have come with Henry Blanco behind the plate?  Mark Prior, returning from a broken right arm couldn’t contain himself when singing Blanco’s praises.

“Henry Blanco called a great game,” said Prior. “It even shocked me when he called for a 3-1 curve to Thomas and Konerko. I think that set it up for both times the at-bats ended, because they probably didn’t know what to expect. I didn’t know what to expect and just trusted Henry.”

Also, Henry had threatened to break Prior’s other arm if he shook him off.
