Germán Márquez Comes Within 3 Outs Of 8th No-Hitter Of 2021


German Márquez came within three outs of what would have been a record-tying eighth no-hitter this season before allowing Ka’ai Tom’s single leading off the ninth inning in the Colorado Rockies 8-0 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

The 26-year-old Venezuelan right-hander faced one batter over the minimum.

Jacob Stallings was hit in the left ribs by a knuckle-curve with a 1-2 count and one out in the second inning, and Phillip Evans checked his swing and walked on a 3-2 slider that went low and outside with one out in the fifth.

Kevin Newman then grounded into an inning ending double play.
