Estrada loses 2nd consecutive 8th-inning no-no, 2 years ago today

The Toronto Blue Jays’ Marco Estrada lost an eighth-inning no-hitter in his second consecutive start, two years ago today.

Estrada reached the eighth with a no-no intact against the Tampa Bay Rays on June 24, 2015, at Tropicana Field before Logan Forsythe tagged him for a one-out infield single. Five days earlier, Estrada lost a no-no against the Orioles at Rogers Centre with no out in the eighth.

Here are those two starts:

Stieb-esque Estrada loses second straight no-hit bid

Could the Toronto Blue Jays’ Marco Estrada become the next Dave Stieb?

For the second straight start, Estrada took a no-hitter bid into the eighth inning, getting the first out Wednesday before Logan Forsythe tagged him for an infield single.

On Friday, Estrada lost one against the Orioles with no out in the eighth.

Stieb, who finally got a no-no for the Blue Jays after four missed opportunities, lost no-hit bids with two outs in the ninth in back-to-back starts in September 1998.
