Zack Greinke still believes there would be some hassle if the day ever comes he throws a no-hitter.
But he wants one, especially after coming agonizingly close to the first of his career.
“There is some hassle to it, but I think I would have liked to have done it,” Greinke said.
Greinke came within two outs of pitching the third no-hitter by the Houston Astros this year, losing his bid on a single by Seattle rookie Austin Nola in the ninth inning of a 3-0 win over the Mariners on Wednesday night.

That dubious achievement would have put them in the all-time MLB record book. No team has ever been no-hit three times in one season. (READ MORE) by Ryan Divish
