Kershaw's no-hit bid for Dodgers broken up in 7th inning

BY AP • July 4, 2017

LOS ANGELES (AP) Clayton Kershaw has given up an infield single to Chris Owings with one out in the seventh inning, the first hit by the Arizona Diamondbacks off the Los Angeles Dodgers' ace.

Owings fisted a soft grounder to second baseman Logan Forsythe, but rookie first baseman Cody Bellinger broke for the ball when it was hit. Kershaw was too late getting over to cover the bag, and Owings beat the play at first as Kershaw had to reach back for Forsythe's throw.

Looking to pitch his second career no-hitter, Kershaw had struck out 10 in his bid to become the first 13-game winner in the majors this season. He retired his first five batters Tuesday night before issuing the first of his two walks, both to Chris Iannetta.

The Dodgers led 3-0, with Justin Turner driving in two runs.

Kershaw threw 92 pitches through six innings.
