Indians’ Bauer takes ALDS no-no into 6th vs. Yankees

The Cleveland Indians’ Trevor Bauer took a no-hitter in the sixth inning against the New York Yankees Thursday night but gave up his bid on a one-out Aaron Hicks double to left.

Bauer was looking to toss the first post-season no-no since Wednesday, October 6, 2010, when the Philadelphia Phillies’ Roy Halladay no-hit the Cincinnati Reds in Game 1 of the National League Divisional Series. Halladay’s 4-0 gem marked his second no-hitter that season, as he threw a perfecto against the Florida Marlins that June.

The first postseason no-no, of course, was the New York Yankees’ Don Larsen’s perfect game in Game 5 of the 1956 World Series against the Brooklyn Dodgers.
