The San Francisco Giants found themselves on the wrong side of a no-hitter Tuesday night in Cincinnati.
Reds pitcher Homer Bailey threw a no-hitter at the Giants, as the Reds beat San Francisco 3-0 at Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati.
Bailey’s only mistake in the game was a walk Gregor Blanco who led off the top of the 7th inning for the Giants. That prevented Bailey from recording a perfect game. Other than the walk, Bailey dominated the Giants line-up.
He struck out nine Giants hitters, throwing mostly fastballs clocked in the mid-90s. It was Bailey’s second career no-hitter, and the latest sign the Giants hitters are in a cumulative batting slump.
San Francisco, the defending World Series Champion, has struggled lately, and is now fighting to stay out of last place in the National League West.
