Are the Astros in the middle of a World Series run?
Friday June 9th, 2017

Astros pitcher Lance McCullers lost a no-hitter against the Royals with one out in the seventh inning.

McCullers, Houston’s 23-year-old ace, had issued just two walks and struck out seven batters before surrendering a triple to Lorenzo Cain with Houston up 1–0.

If McCullers had completed the feat, it would be the second no-hitter in one week after Marlins pitcher Edinson Volquez shut down the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

The last Astros pitcher to throw a no-hitter was Mike Fiers, in August 2015.
