Harvey Haddix has some company nowRich Hill joins Harvey Haddix in the group of hard-luck losers. Hill was perfect through 8, but lost his PG bid with no outs in the 9th on an error, then retired the next 3 batters to keep the no-no intact.
Josh Harrison came up first in the 10th, and hit a walk-off HR on Hill's 99th pitch of the game.
The Dodgers collected 8 hits and 4 BBs and couldn't get their guy any run support.
While not as dominant as Haddix's 12 innings of perfect baseball, he was pretty darned dominant. If I'm Hill, I wait until reporters are gone and lay into the Dodger hitters for screwing this up for him. The irony, of course, is Haddix achieved his feat as a Pirate, and the Pirates got Hill. Ugh.Advertisement

Harvey Haddix' feat was amazing but I'm a "Old Hoss" Radbourn guy. 59 wins, 441 K's , 678 2/3 innings and a 1.38 E.R.A. in 1884.

Top that Rich Hill. Btw, my man, "Old Hoss" ended his career as a member of our Cincinnati Reds.
Aug 28, 17, 04:55 PM #4In 1965 Jim Maloney twice went into extra innings with a no-no. On June 14 Maloney struck out 18, walked 1, but gave up a home run in the 11th and lost 1-0 to the Mets. On August 19 he beat the Cubs 1-0 in 10 innings at Wrigley Field on a Leo Cardenas HR.
Maloney's pitching line: 12 K 10BB, 1HBP 187 pitches.
