MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) — History was nearly made on Wednesday at Marlins Park.
Rookie right-hander Chris Paddack took a no-hitter into the eighth inning and two relievers got the final four outs to complete a three-hitter and help the San Diego Padres beat the Miami Marlins 3-2.
The Padres, who played their first game in 1969, are the only major league team never to have thrown a no-hitter.
After Starlin Castro homered leading off the eighth, Paddack (6-4) retired the next two batters and then departed, matching the longest outing of his career. He struck out eight, walked one, threw 94 pitches and lowered his ERA to 2.
