Update (9:47 PM EDT): It’s over. Zach Davies issued a one-out walk to Jed Lowrie, then watched Billy Butler drill a two-out, two-run home run to center field.

Brewers starter Zach Davies has no-hit the Athletics through six innings on Tuesday night at Miller Park. The right-hander has walked two and struck out five on 82 pitches. Davies entered Tuesday’s action with a 4.53 ERA and a 38/15 K/BB ratio in 49 2/3 innings spanning nine starts.

The Brewers have supported Davies with five runs off of Athletics starter Sean Manaea, thanks to a two-run Chris Carter home run in the second inning and a three-run carter homer in the bottom of the sixth.

If Davies can make it through the final three innings without allowing a hit, he would become the first Brewer to throw a no-hitter since Juan Nieves no-hit the Orioles on April 15, 1987. The Athletics haven’t been no-hit since a combined no-no by the Orioles’ Bob Milwacki, Mike Flanagan, Mark Williamson, and Gregg Olson on July 13, 1991.

We’ll keep you updated as Davies navigates through the final three frames.

Report: Blake Treinen signs one-year, $10 million deal with Dodgers

Free agent reliever Blake Treinen has signed a one-year, $10 million contract with the Dodgers, ESPN’s Jeff Passan reports.

Treinen, 31, was non-tendered by the Athletics last week as he entered his third year of arbitration eligibility. Despite finishing as arguably baseball’s best reliever in 2018, Treinen had a disappointing 2019 campaign, posting a 4.91 ERA with 16 saves, 59 strikeouts, and 37 walks over 58 2/3 innings.

Treinen will join the back of the Dodgers’ bullpen along with Joe Kelly, Pedro Báez, and Kenley Jansen. Jansen still figures to be the closer, but Treinen could eventually assume the role if he comes back into form and Jansen doesn’t.
