(4/2/14) Both starting pitchers took no-hitters into the seventh inning this afternoon,
before the Milwaukee Brewers lost to Atlanta 1-to-nothing at Miller Park. Brewers' right-hander Matt Garza lost his no-hit bid with two out in the seventh, when Chris Johnson homered into the Milwaukee bullpen in left center for the only run of the game. Braves' starter Aaron Harang lost his shot at history right after the seventh inning stretch, when Logan Schafer singled. Garza went eight innings in his Milwaukee debut, after signing a four-year free agent deal a couple months ago. He struck out seven and walked one, while giving up a run on two hits. Harang got the win, giving up two hits in six-and-two-thirds scoreless innings, with a walk and three "K's." Craig Kimbrel picked up his second save of the young season. The Brewers had just two singles from Schafer and Aramis Ramirez. Three Braves only had three hits -- the homer by Johnson and singles from B-J Upton and Gerald Laird. Milwaukee is now 1-and-2. They'll hit the road, and will be opposition for Boston's Opening Day on Friday afternoon.
