Let’s laugh at the Dodgers’ Rich Hill, who loses no-hitter on walk-off homer
— MLB (@MLB) August 24, 2017
This is no place to shed tears for Dodgers fans.
That said, Los Angeles starting pitcher Rich Hill didn’t deserve the fate dealt to him Wednesday. He took a perfect game into the ninth inning, when an early error cost him that potential outcome. Then, with the Pirates and Dodgers deadlocked, 0-0, he went after a no-hitter in the 10th but gave up a solo home run to the Pirates’ Josh Harrison.
The walk-off homer was the first allowed by a pitcher chasing a no-hitter in MLB history.
Either way you slice it, that was a heck of a performance by Hill. But a Dodgers loss is a Dodgers loss on the Haboob blog, and so we’re here to laugh at Los Angeles.
First, a picture:
Now let’s head to Twitter:
