Giants lefthander Matt Moore was one out away from a no-hitter against the rival Dodgers on Thursday night.
Dodgers rookie Corey Seager hit a single into right field to break up Moore’s no-hitter. Santiago Casilla then came in to get the final out of the game for San Francisco.
Moore, acquired by the Giants at the trade deadline, struck out seven and walked three in 8 2/3 innings of work. He threw a career-high 133 pitches, 88 of which went for strikes. Moore was attempting to continue the Giants’ streak of having a pitcher throw a no-hitter in each of the last four seasons.
Some of Moore’s former Rays teammates reacted to his near-feat on Twitter:
Soooo close!!! Brilliant outing by Matty Mo!!!
