Sean Newcomb has been on the list of main reasons for your Atlanta Braves’ resurgence in 2018, as well as on Sunday the 25-year-old left-hander came within one strike of the no-hitter in beating the Dodgers on at SunTrust Park in Atlanta.

Newcombe struck out eight and were built with a 2-2 rely on Chris Taylor with two outs inside the ninth inning, before Taylor grounded a ball past a diving Johan Camargo at third base for your first hit with the game for Los Angeles.

Those 134 pitches for Newcomb are definitely the most thrown in the Major League game in three MLB The Show 18 Stubs seasons, when Mike Fiers also tossed 134 pitches inside a no-hitter from the Dodgers.

Newcomb retired the initial 15 batters with the game before walking Yasiel Puig to open up the sixth inning. Newcomb retired his next 11 batters faced before Taylor’s single. That brought the hook from manager Brian Snitker, with Newcomb getting a standing ovation while he left the action.

Manny Machado followed using a single against reliever Dan Winkler to spoil the shutout, but that has been all for Los Angeles in the 4-1 Braves’ win to salvage the finale of the four-game series.

Newcomb lowered his ERA to three.23 about the season in 20 starts, including 2.86 in your own home in Atlanta. Newcomb may be a part of your strong Braves starting rotation this holiday season, whose collective 3.67 ERA ranks third inside the National League.

The Braves are 1? games back in the Phillies from the National League East, bidding for Atlanta’s first playoff appearance since 2013.

Sunday is a milestone day with the franchise with MLB 18 Stubs longtime Braves star Chipper Jones inducted to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown. It might are becoming even more special had Newcomb completed his gem.

The last no-hitter in Braves history was by Kent Mercker on Apr. 8, 1994, also contrary to the Dodgers though in Los Angeles. That happened being the 20th anniversary of Hank Aaron’s 715 career great hit that moved him past Babe Ruth for that all-time homer lead.
