No no-hitter? No worries. The Rockies still won it 3-0 and took the series from the Cubs. Marquez ultimately pitched eight scoreless innings, during which he allowed three hits, walked one, and struck out eight. Greg Holland pitched a clean ninth inning to get his league leading fourteenth save of the year. The Rockies improved their record to 22-13. The Dodgers are up next. They arrive tomorrow.
A full recap is on its way.

There won’t be a no hitter today, and the Rockies’ first complete game one-hitter also remains elusive. But Marquez got the first hit of his career off of a pitch at his eyeballs:

Rockies pitcher German Marquez has made it through six innings without giving up a hit to the Chicago Cubs at Coors Field. He allowed a walk with two outs in the first to Kyle Schwarber but has otherwise been absolutely dominant.
There has only been one no-hitter in Rockies history, by Ubaldo Jimenez on April 17, 2010 against the Atlanta Braves in (now defunct) Turner Field. There has been one no-hitter in Coors Field history, thrown by the Dodgers’ Hideo Nomo on September 17, 1996.
Marquez was originally acquired by the Rockies from the Tampa Bay Rays along with Jake McGee in exchange for outfielder Corey Dickerson and minor leaguer Kevin Padlo. He was called up on April 25 to take the place of injured starter Jon Gray. Since then he has made three starts and allowed a 7.31 ERA and a 1.688 WHIP heading into today’s game.
