For the first time in major league history, a deep no-hit bid has zapped by replay.
The Boston Red Sox’s Eduardo Rodriguez had been no-hitting the Oakland Athletics through 7 2/3 innings, when A’s shortstop Marcus Semien hit a ball off Rodriguez’s leg. Rodriguez picked up the ball and threw to first and Semien was called out, but the A’s challenged the call and it was overturned. The A’s had their first hit, and Rodriguez lost the no-no.
The call reversal was correct. Semien was safe. But that has to hurt for Rodriguez.
