Texas Rangers pitcher Colby Lewis had a no-hitter broken up in the ninth inning against Oakland Athletics.

The 36-year-old gave up a hit to Max Muncy with no outs in the ninth, after the infielder hit a deep double to right field that Nomar Mazara couldn’t field at the wall.

Lewis issued a walk to Yonder Alonso with two outs in the eighth to end a perfect game. He got Marcus Semien to fly out to left field to keep the no-hitter intact going into the ninth.

The Rangers won the game 5–1, with Ian Desmond and Prince Fielder each recording RBIs in the top of the seventh to get Texas on the board. 

Lewis was looking to become the first Rangers pitcher to throw a no-hitter since Kenny Rodgers recorded a perfect game against the California Angels on July 28, 1994. 

Lewis entered the game with a 5–0 record and 3.00 ERA in 13 starts this season.
