Astros’ Lance McCullers loses no-hitter against Royals
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.
