Reds don’t allow a Bucs hit—but lose

Rookie Hunter Greene carried a no-hitter into the eighth inning but still ended up being on the wrong end of a 1-0 Reds loss to the Pirates on Sunday.

While throwing 118 pitches—the most in the Majors this season—Greene worked 7 1/3 innings with five walks and nine strikeouts. With one out in the eighth inning, the 22-year-old issued back-to-back walks as he showed signs of fatigue. Reliever Art Warren took over and after walking his first batter, Ben Gamel, induced what should have been an inning-ending double play.

On Ke’Bryan Hayes’ ground ball to second base, Alejo Lopez bobbled the ball in his glove and could only notch one out on the play as Rodolfo Castro scored the game’s lone run.

Greene was the first Reds rookie to take a no-hitter through seven innings since Travis Wood carried a perfect game into the ninth before giving up a hit at Philadelphia on July 10, 2010. Cincinnati went on to lose in 11 innings, 1-0, during that game.

Mets toss ‘22’s first no-no, down Phillies

One month shy of a decade ago, Johan Santana removed the burden of history from Citi Field. When Santana pitched the first no-hitter in franchise history, he opened the gates for others to follow.

It once again took a lengthy wait, even as the Mets rose to prominence with one of baseball’s best young rotations. Throughout the league, 39 no-hitters took place after Santana’s, including efforts from 18 different teams. But it was not until a chilly night at Citi Field on Friday that the Mets added another of their own.

Tylor Megill pitched the first five innings, before Drew Smith, Joely Rodríguez, Seth Lugo and Edwin Díaz combined on the final 12 outs to complete the historic 3-0 win over the Phillies.
