12:08 AM: So it goes. Shane Victorino broke up the no-hit bid with a one-out single in the eighth inning.
11:54 PM: This isn’t related to the no-hitter, but here’s a sign that Kuroda is have a once-in-a-lifetime night. In the bottom of the seventh inning, he just got his first hit of the season. He was 0-for-45 before the one-out single to center field.
11:47 PM: Ho-hum. Another Monday, another chance at history.
Hiroki Kuroda currently has a no-hitter through seven innings against the Phillies. He has allowed just two baserunners thus far — by virtue of hitting Jayson Werth with a pitch in the second inning and walking Carlos Ruiz in the sixth — while striking out six.
Kuroda has also thrown 83 pitches, 53 of them for strikes, so opposed to Rich Harden last week, he should have a legitimate chance to finish this one. Stay tuned to see if he can keep it going.
