Rich Hill held the Pirates hitless and lost in historic fashion when he took his no-hit bid into the 10th inning of a scoreless game between the Dodgers and Pirates. 

Hill had a perfect game going until the Pirates reached on an error to start the ninth inning. Hill got through it only to lose 1-0 when he gave up a walk-off home run to Josh Harrison to lead off the bottom of the 10th. 

According to ESPN Stats and Information, Hill is the first pitcher in the last 100 seasons to lose when allowing one or fewer hits with no walks over nine innings and still lose. ESPN adds that Josh Harrison is the first player to break up a no-hitter with a walk-off homer.
