Sean Newcomb Almost Throws No-Hitter

Atlanta – Sean Newcomb was one pitch away from a no-hitter before getting a ground-out hit by the Dodgers.

Newcomb brought his best stuff against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday and improved to 10-5 on the year. He threw 134 pitches yesterday. That’s the most he’s thrown this season since June 27th against the Cincinnati Reds.  It would’ve been the first no-hitter for Atlanta since 1994.

The Braves moved within 1 1/2 games of the Philadelphia Phillies with yesterday’s win and look to keep closing in and possibly pass the Phillies with a 3-game series against the Miami Marlins.

Newcomb’s next game will be this Friday, August 3rd, against the New York Mets. Maybe he’ll have the same success that he had yesterday.
