Colby Lewis loses no-hit bid in 9th, Rangers beat A’s

🕐 1 min read

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Colby Lewis took a no-hit bid into the ninth inning for Texas before Max Muncy broke it up with a leadoff double that glanced off right fielder Nomar Mazara’s glove Thursday in the Rangers’ 5-1 victory over the Oakland Athletics.

Lewis was perfect until walking Yonder Alonso with two outs in the eighth.

Muncy began the ninth with a drive to deep right field. Mazara, a rookie who made a nice running catch to rob Muncy in the third, ran hard toward the corner and tracked down this ball but couldn’t hold onto it as he crashed into the padded wall.

Mazara looked at his glove as he retrieved the ball. Official scorer David Feldman immediately called the play a double, ending Lewis’ quest for Texas’ first no-hitter in 22 years.

Two batters later, Lewis (6-0) lost his shutout when left fielder Ryan Rua couldn’t make a diving catch on a blooper by Coco Crisp that went for an RBI double.
