The Dodgers really left Rich Hill out to dry.
Rich Hill Got Robbed
What are the odds that the Dodgers, who have not been shut out since June 26, fail to score a run on the night Rich Hill carries a perfect game through eight and a no-hitter through nine? The SI cover jinx strikes again.
But the no-hit bid could have ended in the eighth if not for this amazing play by Chase Utley.
The result was historically unfortunate.

Devoted (and particularly creepy) Hot Clicks readers may recognize SI Swimsuit casting contestant Kayla Fitzgerald from her appearance as Lovely Lady of the Day in the May 30 edition of Clicks, where Andy identified her only as “Kayla Fitz.” Readers no doubt, were left wondering what her full name was. Fitzgerald? Fitzsimmons? Fitzgibbon? Glad we cleared that up. (Click here for the full-size gallery.)
