Controversial call spoils no hitter for Sabathia


PITTSBURGH (AP) -- To the Milwaukee Brewers, CC Sabathia pitched the no-hitter that wasn't.

Even if Sabathia may have been the only player in their clubhouse who wasn't upset that the best-pitched game of his career will go down as a one-hitter.

Sabathia limited the Pirates to Andy LaRoche's infield single leading off the fifth inning, on a play Milwaukee manager Ned Yost argued was an error on the pitcher, and the Brewers beat Pittsburgh 7-0 today for their eighth victory in nine games.

Sabathia (9-0) pitched the majors' fourth one-hitter this season and couldn't have come much closer to a no-hitter, with no Pirates batter except for LaRoche threatening to get a hit during the team's 10th consecutive loss.
