Greinke Flirts With No-No, Astros Blank Mariners

Houston Astros v Seattle Mariners

Zack Greinke fell two outs shy of a no-hitter as the Astros blanked the Mariners 3-0 in Seattle. Greinke allowed back-to-back singles to Austin Nola and Tim Lopes in the ninth before Will Harris closed out the game. Alex Bregman and Yordan Alvarez doubled in runs in the first for Houston and Kyle Tucker tacked on a solo homer in the ninth. The Astros have won nine-of-10 and on the verge of clinching home field advantage in the AL playoffs. Yusei Kikuchi took the loss for Seattle, its third straight. Dee Gordon drew a walk in the sixth inning to break up the perfect game.
