Bronson Arroyo loses no-hitter vs. Brewers in eighth inning

We have an official no-hitter alert in Cincinnati.

Reds right-hander Bronson Arroyo, who entered the night with a pedestrian 4.19 ERA, has tossed seven innings against the Brewers without allowing a hit. He’s fanned three and issued zero walks, and the only thing keeping him from being on perfect game watch was a hit-by-pitch of Ryan Braun in the first.

Arroyo is at 82 pitches (56 strikes) entering the eighth inning. We’ll provide updates from here on out.


UPDATE, 9:06 PM: Arroyo struck out Travis Ishikawa to open the eighth, then walked George Kottaras. Taylor Green followed with a double into the right field corner, ending Arroyo’s shot at history. Corey Hart doubled in two runs in the very next at-bat, spoiling Arroyo’s chance at a shutout. All is back to normal.

UPDATE, 9:18 PM: Arroyo is out. He wound up allowing three runs on three hits over 7 2/3 innings.

    Taylor Green, of all people, breaks it up.

      Blame Canada. He is one of ours. It was a solid hit.

    Looks like it took less than 5 minutes from the original post — if that’s not scientific proof that jinxing these things is real, I don’t know what is!

    Where’s metalhead? We need a proper rant about how Dusty left Arroyo in just long enough to get a ND.

      I was going to try to form a metalhead response disparaging Dusty and blaming the tie game on his bullpen management; and just generally viewing the glass much less than half full, but my natural demeanor wouldn’t allow it. I had whole post written from the metalhead voice about bullpen management and lineup construction, but I decided it wasn’t nearly negative enough so I killed it. God love metalhead, he’s fantastic.
