Pittsburgh had two base runners on the night: The first came when Clint Barmes reached first base after an error by Scott Rolen in the third inning. Andrew McCutchen walked in the bottom of the seventh before being caught stealing.
Pittsburgh's A.J. Burnett threw a nice game of his own, allowing only one Cincinnati run. The Reds scored it 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.
This was the first time Pittsburgh has been no-hit since the Cardinals' Bob Gibson pitched a no-no in an 11-0 St. Louis decision in 1971. The Pirates have had a September to forget, falling out of the playoff chase and losing their chance at a first winning record since 1992.
