SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — German Marquez of the Colorado Rockies has lost his no-hit bid on Evan Longoria’s one-out single in the eighth inning at San Francisco.
After Gold Glove third baseman Nolan Arenado made a nifty play on a hard one-hopper by Brandon Crawford to begin the eighth Sunday, Longoria followed by grounding a single past Arenado’s dive.
The Giants had only one runner until Longoria’s hit.
The 24-year-old Marquez is making his second start since signing a $43 million, five-year contract.
Colorado leads 4-0.
