Watch Arenado (temporarily) keep a no-no alive

April 14, 2019

With right-hander German Márquez vying for the second no-hitter in Rockies history on Sunday afternoon against the Giants, Nolan Arenado came through with a heart-stopping defensive highlight, briefly extending his teammate's bid for history.

With right-hander German Márquez vying for the second no-hitter in Rockies history on Sunday afternoon against the Giants, Nolan Arenado came through with a heart-stopping defensive highlight, briefly extending his teammate's bid for history.

Brandon Crawford led off the bottom of the eighth inning by grounding a laser to Arenado, who blocked the ball, then ranged to his right to gather it in the air with his bare hand before nailing Crawford at first. The play pulled Marquez to within five outs of history, but the next batter, Evan Longoria, perfectly placed San Francisco's first hit of the day between Arenado and shortstop Trevor Story, putting an end to the drama.
