Bader's 8th-inning bloop single ruins Tigers' combination no-hitter bid against Mets.

NEW YORK — Harrison Bader hit a single to start the eighth inning for the New York Mets, which put an end to Detroit's attempt to throw a combined no-hitter in the second game of a doubleheader that was played on Thursday.  

Bader took a half-swing at a changeup from left-handed reliever Tyler Holton that was 1-2 and blooped it into shallow left-center, which drew a cheer from the Bronx from the crowd that was present at Citi Field.  

Going all the way back to the opening game of the doubleheader, New York had gone thirteen innings without allowing a single hit. In the second game, the Tigers, who had not yet suffered a loss, entered the ninth inning with a 1-0 advantage.  

Detroit's Matt Manning, who was making his first start of the season, went five and two-thirds innings without allowing any hits before being replaced by Holton. Holton then struck out Brett Baty, which allowed Brandon Nimmo to remain standing at first base. After that, Holton played a seventh that was flawless.

Despite the fact that he walked four batters and struck out three, Manning, who was brought up from the minor leagues to make the start, did not even come close to allowing a single. The Mets, who had not yet won a game, went hitless for the final six innings of their team's first game, which they lost 6-3 after 11 innings.  

Alex Lange pitched the ninth inning of the Tigers' most recent no-hitter, which was a 2-0 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays  

Manning opened the game on July 7, and he pitched six and two-thirds innings before Jason Foley got four outs and Alex Lange worked the ninth.  

In a victory over the Blue Jays by a score of 10-0, the right-handed pitcher for the Houston Astros, Ronel Blanco, walked two batters while throwing the first no-hitter of the season on Monday.
