As you probably know, allowing zero hits is usually a good way to set up your team for success and a win. But, as always, there are exceptions. Let's have a look at the whole story.
Weaver was once one of the game's best pitchers, Weaver had held the Dodgers hitless through four innings in a scoreless game, but then the fifth inning happened. Matt Kemp reached on an error from Weaver himself, who was unable to field a weakly-hit grounder back to him.
Greene had an even uglier 7.62 mark over his first six MLB outings. The 22-year-old rookie, a highly touted prospect, struck out nine over the first seven frames. Somewhat surprisingly, the Reds sent him back out for the eighth.
Warren issued another walk, loading the bases and setting the Pirates up to score on Ke'Bryan Hayes' fielder's choice grounder. That was all Pittsburgh would get, but the damage was already done, and the Reds went down in order in the top of the ninth to seal it.
Matt Young From Red Sox
Andy Hawkins from Yankees
Through 7 2/3 innings, Hawkins appeared to be putting together a normal no-hit bid. He’d issued three walks, but had not allowed a run or a hit and had kept the White Sox at bay. Of course, his own team hadn’t scored yet either. But with two outs in the eighth, the story changed dramatically.
