Toure doubles with one out in the no-hitter.

Alex Cobb (San Francisco Giants) pitched a complete game, allowing one run (one earned) on nine hits and one walk while striking out eight against the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday at Oracle Park in San Francisco, Calif.

Cobb got things started in the top of the first, getting T.J. Friedle to fly out to left field and then getting Spencer Steer and Eli De La Cruz to ground out to third and second, respectively. After retiring the side in order in the top of the second, the Bears put runners on base for the first time in the top of the third. With the bases loaded, Nick Senzel hit a grounder to third baseman Casey Schmidt. Schmidt caught the ball and threw to first, but made an error. However, Cobb got Friedle to ground out to second base to end the inning.

The Giants took the lead in the second inning after Cincinnati pitcher Brandon Williamson was called for a pitching change violation with runners on first and third, and Luis Mateo followed with an RBI double. A wild pitch by Williamson and a two-run homer by Patrick Bailey in the bottom of the third took the pressure off Cobb.

Cobb didn’t strand a single runner from the third through the seventh. In the top of the eighth, he struck out Tyler Stephenson and got Christian Encarnacion Strand to ground out to the catcher. Will Benson followed with a single up the middle. However, center fielder Austin Slater made the catch. Cincinnati challenged, but the call was upheld.

Cobb was back on the mound in the ninth. After getting Noelby Marte to fly out to right field, he gave up a single to Senzel. He then got Friedle to fly out to right field. After Senzel stole second base on an unassisted steal, Steer came to the plate.

Cobb’s no-hitter left the bases loaded with one out. But Steer hit a line drive to right-center field. Luis Matos leaped to catch the ball, but it sailed over his head. Senzel came home to break Cobb’s no-hitter. Cobb then struck out De La Cruz to end the game.

“He missed the chance to become the first San Francisco player to throw a no-hitter since Chris Heston in June 2015 against the New York Mets,” according to ESPN.

After the game, Cobb said, “I wasn’t angry or sad. I was just like, ‘Let’s get this game over with,'” Cobb said after the game. “So many things have to go right to get a no-hitter.”먹튀검증

Cobb has started 25 games this season, posting a 7-5 record with 58 runs (56 earned) in 141 1/3 innings pitched, a 3.57 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP. The game was his second complete game of the year. One of those games was a complete game shutout.
