Padres’ Chacín takes no-hitter into the 6th

The San Diego Padres’ Jhoulys Chacín took a no-hitter into the sixth inning on Saturday night before DJ LeMaheiu singled with two out, extending the club’s streak of no no-hitters to 7,807 regular season games (and 34 post-season contests).

LeMaheiu lined a ball to center field just out of the reach of a diving Manuel Margot, Margot trapped the ball to hold LeMaheiu to a single. It was the only hit yielded by Chacín during his six innings of work, as the Padres topped the Colorado Rockies 5-0.

The Padres are the only major league franchise to have never thrown a no-hitter, a streak in its 48th year.
