Rich Hill throws a 9-inning no-hitter and loses in the 10th

Rich Hill throws a 9-inning no-hitter and loses 1-0 in the 10th

He pitched a tremendous game with ten strikeouts, no hits and no walks. The first eight innings were perfect. In the ninth one batter reached on an error, so he faced one batter above the minimum. Then it all came crashing down in the 10th when Josh Harrison led off the inning with a game-ending homer.

"According to ESPN Stats & Information, Hill became the first pitcher in the last 100 seasons to throw at least nine innings, allow one or fewer hits with no walks and still get a loss."
