MLB Pitcher Rich Hill Loses No-Hitter in the Worst Possible Way

The Los Angeles Dodgers have the best record in baseball. The Dodgers have 89 wins with more than 40 games remaining! Since 1963 (when the MLB season became 162 games), the most wins during the regular season was 116 (2001 Seattle Mariners). 

So why is this significant?

Because the Los Angeles Dodgers, the best team in baseball and possibly the best regular season team of all-time, couldn't muster just one fucking run last night in order to secure a no-hitter for pitcher Rich Hill.

That's right, pitcher Rich Hill of the Los Angeles Dodgers pitched 9 hitless innings, but was not awarded a no-hitter, as a matter of fact, he took a loss for the game! For the first time in the history of baseball, a pitcher lost a no-hitter on a walk-off homerun in the 10th inning!!! Here's how it went down...

Rich Hill threw a stunning game for the Dodgers. In the first nine innings he didn't give up a walk or a hit in addition to ten strikeouts. However, the Pittsburgh Pirates pitchers didn't do so bad either. Their starter, Trevor Williams walked four, struck out 5 but gave up no runs in eight innings pitched, the bullpen allowed one hit in two innings and struck out two. Which leads up to the bottom of the 10th inning, no-hitter is still intact, here's what happened next....

It just wasn't Rich Hill's night. However, it's a little difficult to feel sorry for someone who stands to make $12 Million this season and only has to play once every 4 or 5 games, and plays for a team who is most likely going to the World Series. I'm sure he'll get over it. -EE
