Dodger’s pitcher Rich Hill pitched a perfect game through 7 innings. He was helped by a great catch by the oldest player on the field 2nd baseman chase Utley who laid out and snagged a vicious line drive. He lost the perfect game in the eight inning on error by the Dodgers third baseman. Nevertheless he marched on in a scoreless game between the Dodgers and Pirates and pitched a no hitter through 9 innings. In the tenth inning while still pitching a no hitter Josh Hamilton of the Pirates came to bat and on the first pitch hit a home run to end the game to give the pirates the win. Hill became the first pitcher in MLB history to pitch a no-hitter into the extra innings and lose.
