Phillies lose combined no-hitter in 9th

Kim Klement / USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Phillies were two outs away from spring training immortality, and then the wheels came off.

Vince Velasquez, Jake Thompson, Colton Murray and Michael Mariot combined to no-hit the Baltimore Orioles for 8 1/3 innings on Thursday before Mariot allowed a one-out single to Chris Dickerson to spoil the night.

PITCHER IP H R ER BB SO
Velasquez 3.2 0 0 0 4 6
Thompson 2.1 0 0 0 0 2
Murray 1.2 0 0 0 1 0
Mariot 1.1 2 2 2 2 0

Orioles second baseman Sean Coyle followed with a two-run home run off Mariot to make it 2-2. Mariot would eventually finish off the inning, with the game ending in a tie.

There's been 24 spring training no-hitters in history, with the Atlanta Braves collecting the last one when nine different pitchers combined to no-hit the Houston Astros in 10 innings in 2015.

That game also finished in a 2-2 tie.
