Dodgers' Rich Hill loses no-hitter on Pirates' walk-off homer in 10th inning

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts pulled Rich Hill from a perfect game in Miami last year, taking him out after seven innings to preserve him for the playoffs.

Hill retired the first 24 batters he faced Wednesday night, taking a perfect game into the ninth inning before Forsythe couldn’t handle Jordy Mercer’s chopper.

But Pratt recommend a replay challenge through the dugout phone and the call was overturned, Hill having reached out and tagged Bell before he got to the bag.

Two innings later, Gonzalez kept the perfect game alive by making a sliding catch of Josh Harrison’s popped bunt on the infield grass.

Hill became the first pitcher to take a no-hitter into extra-innings since Pedro Martinez on June 3, 1995, and it was the first time in major-league history a perfect-game bid ended in the ninth inning on an error.
