The Colorado Rockies German Marquez took a no-hitter into the eighth inning on Sunday but lost it on an Evan Longoria single threaded between third and short.
Marquez held the San Francisco Giants hitless at Oracle Park through 7⅓ innings but lost the effort when Longoria placed a single through the left side of the infield. Marquez was trying to join Jim Colborn and Ramon Martinez in the No. 48 club.
The last (and only) Rockies no-hitter was 8 years, 11 months, 27 days ago by Ubaldo Jiménez, who no-hit the Atlanta Braves on Saturday, April 17, 2010 for a 4-0 win at Turner Field. The last no-hitter against the Giants was 5 years, 9 months, 12 days ago by the Cincinnati Reds’ Homer Bailey, a 3-0 win on Tuesday, July 2, 2013 at Great American Ball Park.
Marquez last took a Colorado Rockies no-hitter into the seventh on Wednesday, May 10, 2017, when the Chicago Cubs’ Kris Bryant broke it up with a lead-off double. The Rockies that game won 3-0.
