I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention last night’s Dodgers/Pirates game. Dodger pitcher Rich Hill took a perfect game into the ninth and lost that when his 3b made an error. Then he lost the no-hitter and the game when he gave up a HR to the first Pirates’ batter, Josh Harrison, in the bottom of the tenth. 1-0 Pirates. Ouch.

From MLB.com:

Harrison is the first player in Major League history to break up a no-hitter with an extra-inning, walk-off homer.

Hill is the second pitcher to lose a no-hitter on a walk-off hit — and should’ve been the second to lose such a game on a walk-off homer, instead of the first. In 1959, the Pirates’ Harvey Haddix carried a perfect game into the 13th inning against the Braves in Milwaukee. After Felix Mantilla reached on an error to end the perfecto in the bottom of the 13th, Hank Aaron was walked intentionally. Joe Adcock slugged what should have been a walk-off homer, but Aaron, after touching second and seeing that Mantilla had crossed the plate, left the basepaths. Adcock passed Aaron and was called out. National League president Warren Giles ruled that Mantilla’s run counted, Adcock was awarded a double, and the game was over, a 1-0 Braves victory.
