Elliott Tosses No-Hitter and Wins it with Game's Only Hit
Karson Elliot and Jackson Emery matched up in one of the season's finest pitching duels. Both pitchers piled up the strikeouts - Elliot with 15 and Emery with 14. Elliot's no-hitter was the first of his career. Emery pitched a gem as well - a one hitter. After three innings of scoreless baseball, the Athletics broke through with two runs in the fourth. Elliot laced a two-out 2 run double down the third base line to score Alex McClelland and Keagan Systo for the game's only runs. The Reds' Willem Thurber added to the strikeout totals with two more out of the bullpen. The pitching staffs combined for 31 strikeouts with only 6 balls hit into play.
