Reds' Homer Bailey no-hitting Pittsburgh through 8

Homer Bailey of the Cincinnati Reds is no-hitting the Pittsburgh Pirates through eight innings at PNC Park. An Andrew McCutchen drew a walk in the only Pirates baserunner of the contest thus far. Bailey has nine strikeouts through eight innings, including two each of Pedro Alvarez and Jordy Mercer.

Pittsburgh's AJ Burnett has thrown a nice game of his own, allowing only one Cincinnati run. The Reds scored the only run of the ballgame in the first inning, when a Todd Frazier sacrifice fly scored Brandon Phillips. After that, Burnett cruised through eight innings, allowing seven hits while striking out five. Tony Watson is pitching the top of the ninth for Pittsburgh.

The Pirates have no been no-hit since 1971, when Bob Gibson of the St. Louis Cardinals threw the no-no in an 11-0 Cardinals victory. The Pirates have had a September to forget, falling out of the playoff chase and losing their first chance at a winning record since 1992.
