Padres' Edwin Jackson loses no-hitter in seventh
Padres starting pitcher Edwin Jackson no-hit the Giants for 6 1/3 innings before allowing a three-run homer to Conor Gillaspie.
Jackson began the inning by striking out Brandon Crawford, then allowed Gregor Blanco to reach on an error and walked Ramiro Pena. The Giants then sent up Gillaspie to pinch-hit, and he took Jackson deep to right to make the score 4-3.
The righthander left after the homer, having made 90 pitches. He walked five, struck out four, and recorded two hits in three at bats with an RBI.
Jackson was aiming to throw his second career no-hitter. His first came in June 2010, when he started for the Diamondbacks against the Rays. Despite walking eight batters and throwing 149 pitches, he completed nine innings without allowing a hit.
The no-hitter would have been the first in Padres history.
