Since Hill recorded no outs in the bottom of the 10th before giving up the home run (Harrison was the first batter), I guess that voids it from being a complete game.wrote:On September 4, 1991 the Committee for Statistical Accuracy, appointed by Commissioner Fay Vincent, changed the definition of a no-hitter to require that a pitcher must throw at least nine full innings and a complete game for the no-hitter to be official
No clue about lefty leifeldErick Von Erich,Aug 24 2017 wrote: Rich Hill no-hit the Pirates for 9 innings in a 0-0 stalemate. They sent him back out there for the bottom of the 10th and he gave up a home run to Josh Harrison, losing the no-hitter and taking the loss. Funny thing was, Pirates commentator Bob Walk questioned why Hill was back out there for the 10th, saying only bad things could happen--and they did.
Curious if this counts as a "no-hitter". 9 inning and no hits= no hitter? Or if it's one of those Harvey Haddix or Lefty Leifeld type of anomalies.
