Jhoulys Chacin Takes No-Hitter into 7th, and Rockies Hold off Giants 5-4

Fans like to call Jhoulys Chacin "The Machine." Wednesday night in the Rockies' 5-4 victory over the San Francisco Giants, the right-hander was as finely tuned as Carlos Gonzalez's fire-red Ferrari. From his first pitch of the game until his last, Chacin was in total command. He was racing toward the second no-hitter in Rockies history when Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford looped a single to center with two outs in the seventh. Chacin's 6 innings of no-hit baseball is the deepest a Rockies pitcher has ever taken a no-hitter at the hitter's paradise known as Coors Field. The previous best came by John Thomson on May 2, 2002, vs. Pittsburgh. Thomson pitched 6 innings of no-hit ball. And there was considerable question the previous night that he could go at all. Chacin was ill and had a fever.
