(AP) — San Francisco lefty Matt Moore lost his no-hit bid with two outs in the ninth inning on a soft, clean single by Corey Seager, and the Giants beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-0 Thursday night.
Moore’s try ended on his 133rd and final pitch — he missed most of the last two seasons after Tommy John surgery. He was immediately pulled after Seager’s hit plopped onto the grass in shallow right field.
Giants center fielder Denard Span sprinted for two outstanding catches, including a leadoff grab in the ninth, to give Moore a chance.
Moore earned his first win for the Giants since they got him in a trade with Tampa Bay on Aug. 1.
Moore nearly gave San Francisco a major league record five straight years with a no-hitter. And he almost became the first Giants pitcher to no-hit the archrival Dodgers since 1915, when New York’s Rube Marquard stopped Brooklyn.
(AP) — Proponents of an NFL stadium in Las Vegas say they’ve narrowed their list to two potential sites and are unwilling to accept any less than $750 million in public funding toward the project, which they hope will provide a new home for the Raiders.
Representatives from Majestic Realty and the Las Vegas Sands casino company updated an oversight committee Thursday on their effort to reach a deal to lure the Raiders from Oakland.
Developers estimate that a 65,000-seat domed stadium near Interstate 15 and the Las Vegas Strip will cost $1.9 billion, and they want to use hotel tax revenue to help pay for it.
They want Nevada lawmakers to approve the deal in a special session in September so they can present their proposal to NFL owners in January. Three-quarters of the owners must approve any team relocation.
(AP) — Hawaii players sped through early-morning drills with traditional island music emanating from a single speaker in one of the end zones. Across town, California held a final, closed workout except for the curious eyes of a half-dozen or so Sydney police officers wondering what all the fuss was about.
It was fine-tuning day Friday for Cal and Hawaii as the Golden Bears and Rainbow Warriors prepare for Saturday’s season-opening game of the U.S. college football season at Sydney’s Olympic stadium. With the time difference, the game will happen in prime time in the U.S. — Friday afternoon in Hawaii.
