DENVER — Left-hander Kyle Freeland fell just two outs short of the first no-hitter by a Rockies pitcher at Coors Field on Sunday.
The Chicago White Sox’s Melky Cabrera hit a clean single with one out in the ninth inning, ending the bid by the Thomas Jefferson High School graduate.
The Rockies beat the Chicago White Sox, 10-0, winning their first series since in nearly a month.
Freeland threw 126 pitches, only the third time he has reached triple figures. He struck out nine and walked three.
It would have been the second no-hitter in Rockies history. Ubaldo Jimenez threw a no-hitter at Turner Field in Atlanta in April 2010.
The only no-hitter at Coors Field was by Hideo Nomo of the Dodgers on Sept. 17, 1996.
The Rockies finished the first half the season at 52-39, the most wins by a Rockies team at the All-Star Break.
The Rockies resume the season Friday night in New York against the Mets.
