Zach Davies loses no-hitter in the seventh against the Athletics
Update (9:47 PM EDT): It’s over. Zach Davies issued a one-out walk to Jed Lowrie, then watched Billy Butler drill a two-out, two-run home run to center field.
Brewers starter Zach Davies has no-hit the Athletics through six innings on Tuesday night at Miller Park. The right-hander has walked two and struck out five on 82 pitches. Davies entered Tuesday’s action with a 4.53 ERA and a 38/15 K/BB ratio in 49 2/3 innings spanning nine starts.
The Brewers have supported Davies with five runs off of Athletics starter Sean Manaea, thanks to a two-run Chris Carter home run in the second inning and a three-run carter homer in the bottom of the sixth.
If Davies can make it through the final three innings without allowing a hit, he would become the first Brewer to throw a no-hitter since Juan Nieves no-hit the Orioles on April 15, 1987. The Athletics haven’t been no-hit since a combined no-no by the Orioles’ Bob Milwacki, Mike Flanagan, Mark Williamson, and Gregg Olson on July 13, 1991.
We’ll keep you updated as Davies navigates through the final three frames.
