Giants’ Moore misses no-no by one out on bloop single

The San Francisco Giants’ Matt Moore came one out away from a no-hitter Thursday night before yielding a bloop single to the Los Angeles Dodgers’ Corey Seager — on Corey Seager bobblehead night at Chavez Ravine.

Moore reached 133 pitches, so once the no-no was off the board, pitching coach Dave Righetti (who is no stranger to no-nos) called to the bullpen for Santiago Castilla. Castilla threw one pitch to secure the 4-0 shutout.

The Giants were trying to become the first team to throw no-hitters in five consecutive seasons. They’ve done it over the last four years:

(His second of two no-hitters; Lincecum becomes only pitcher since Addie Joss to no-hit the same team twice.)
4 Chris Heston

The only other team to throw no-hitters in four consecutive seasons is the Dodgers, and they were all by Sandy Koufax (1962, ’63, ’64, ’65).
