Think Rich Hill was emotionally crushed by Josh Harrison's walkoff homer and his failed no-hit bid? On the contrary.

Harrison's walk-off homer spoils Hill's no-no (1:46)

Tristan H. Cockcroft ESPN Senior Writer 

Rich Hill's 2.25 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 33.2 percent strikeout rate in his nine starts since July 1 rank sixth, fourth and fourth among qualified pitchers. The "injury risk" label is always going to be applied, but Hill is automatic when he's healthy. With so little season remaining, the top-10 starter case is an easy one.

Josh Harrison hits a walkoff homer in the 10th inning to end Rich Hill's no-hitter and beat the Dodgers 1-0. Excruciating end to a masterful performance by Hill.

MLB's last 10-inning no-hitter was thrown by the Reds' Jim Maloney vs. the Cubs on Aug. 19, 1965.

Rich Hill's perfect game ended on a Logan Forsythe error to start the ninth inning, but he composed himself nicely and maintained his no-hitter through nine. He's thrown only 95 pitches, so he should be ready to come out for the 10th.

Utley preserves Hill's perfect game with diving catch (0:29)

Jerry Crasnick ESPN Senior Writer 

The Dodgers' Rich Hill is perfect through seven innings against Pittsburgh. On Sept. 10 last season, Hill was perfect through seven innings against the Marlins. But manager Dave Roberts pulled him after 89 pitches because Hill was dealing with recurring blister issues. "I feel sick to my stomach," Roberts said at the time. Tonight, Roberts and Hill both get a chance at a do-over.

Rich Hill retires Andrew McCutchen on a weak groundout to second base. He has nine strikeouts and is perfect through seven innings on 74 pitches. The Dodgers have seven hits, but Trevor Williams is also spinning a shutout and the Dodgers and Pirates are tied at 0-0.

Jerry Crasnick ESPN Senior Writer 

Rich Hill has looked masterful while throwing six perfect innings against the Pirates tonight. He's consistently gotten ahead with a 90 mph fastball, used his curveball to good effect and set down 18 straight Pittsburgh hitters on 65 pitches. Pittsburgh's Trevor Williams has also been strong, and the Dodgers and Pirates are tied 0-0 entering the seventh.

Cole sent off after VAR review for LA Galaxy (1:19)

Jared Goff raved about the first-team offensive line, said it "no doubt" felt different: "They've done a great job, just as a whole. They've really worked together; they're starting to jell. I think you saw that last Saturday. The Oakland defensive line is no slouch. They have some dudes over there. They did a great job keeping them away and giving me a good pocket. It wasn't just throw it and get hit. It was clean, the whole time."
