Justing Verlander comes oh-so-close to a no-hitter

The Pittsburgh Pirates have just broken up a no-hitter bid by Justin Verlander, who held the Buccos hitless for 8 and 1/3 innings tonight. A solid hit up the middle by Josh Harrison broke the spell. Verlander was able to wrap up the game and finish a one-hitter as the Detroit Tigers won easily, 6-0.

I’m sure Verlander is disappointed, but a one-hitter is still a great accomplishment.

  1. I just got home myself from a Greenville Drive (Single-A Red Sox) game, so I didn’t catch this bit of news. Thanks for the info. Verlander is unbelievable.
