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

This was Luke Weaver's longest outing (7 innings) in 11 big-league starts and he matched his career high in strikeouts (10). Yes, the matchups caveat -- Padres -- applies, but look at the schedule: lots of Brewers (K-prone), Padres, Giants, PNC Park left for the Cardinals. Adam Wainwright's DL stint isn't necessarily a minimum stay, so Weaver is well worth the add since by all rights he might be in for another 6-7 starts.

The Cubs beat the Reds, 9-3, scoring all their runs in the first four innings. Kyle Schwarber and Tommy La Stella both went deep while Jason Heyward had two run scoring singles as the Cubs have pounded out 23 hits in the first two games of the series. Mike Montgomery pitched 6 scoreless innings though Hector Rondon struggled in the ninth giving up 3 solo home runs.

ESPN Stats and Information  

The Pirates are the 2nd team in major-league history whose only hit of a game was a walk-off hit in extra innings. The other time was against the Pirates by the 1959 Milwaukee Braves.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

The Yankees crushed the Tigers, 10-2. Luis Severino allowed just a run in 6 2/3 innings. Gary Sanchez hit another homer and drove in three. Aaron Judge had two hits, including an RBI double. Ronald Torreyes had four hits. Yankees will try to complete the sweep Thursday afternoon.

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.

Jerry Crasnick ESPN Senior Writer 

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

Jerry Crasnick ESPN Senior Writer 

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.

Jerry Crasnick ESPN Senior Writer 

Rich Hill's perfecto ends when Logan Forsythe boots a routine grounder by Jordy Mercer to open the ninth. No-no still intact.

ESPN Stats and Information  

The last 2 pitchers to carry a perfect-game bid into the 9th inning both did it against the Pirates (Max Scherzer in 2015 and Rich Hill tonight). The Pittsburgh Pirates have never been victims of a perfect game.

Jerry Crasnick ESPN Senior Writer 

Rich Hill goes out for the ninth inning with a perfect game, but it's 0-0 at PNC Park. He's at 88 pitches, and counting.

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.

Jerry Crasnick ESPN Senior Writer 

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.
