Bronson Arroyo loses no-hitter vs. Brewers in eighth inning

7 Comments

We have an official no-hitter alert in Cincinnati.

Reds right-hander Bronson Arroyo, who entered the night with a pedestrian 4.19 ERA, has tossed seven innings against the Brewers without allowing a hit. He’s fanned three and issued zero walks, and the only thing keeping him from being on perfect game watch was a hit-by-pitch of Ryan Braun in the first.

Arroyo is at 82 pitches (56 strikes) entering the eighth inning. We’ll provide updates from here on out.

****************

UPDATE, 9:06 PM: Arroyo struck out Travis Ishikawa to open the eighth, then walked George Kottaras. Taylor Green followed with a double into the right field corner, ending Arroyo’s shot at history. Corey Hart doubled in two runs in the very next at-bat, spoiling Arroyo’s chance at a shutout. All is back to normal.

UPDATE, 9:18 PM: Arroyo is out. He wound up allowing three runs on three hits over 7 2/3 innings.

Yankees sign Brad Miller to minor league contract

The Yankees announced on Monday that the club signed infielder Brad Miller to a minor league contract.

Miller, 29, was designated for assignment by the Indians last week. He wasn’t happy about that decision, saying, “Obviously, [the Indians] don’t want the best guys up here.”

Miller hit .250/.325/.417 with a homer and four RBI in 40 plate appearances with the Indians. The Indians have one of the worst offenses in the league and Miller was one of only a handful of players even hitting at a passable level, which did make his DFA all the more surprising.

The Yankees, decimated by injuries, need depth and Miller will provide that at the very least.
