Pirates beat Reds without registering hit

It's been that kind of season in Cincinnati.

The Reds didn't give up a hit Sunday against the Pittsburgh Pirates but still lost 1-0.

Reds right-hander Hunter Greene didn't allow a hit through 7 1/3 innings before he was removed after issuing two walks in the eighth inning. The rookie threw 118 pitches over his start.

Art Warren replaced Greene, and he allowed one of the runners to score on a fielder's choice after walking the bases loaded.

This is the sixth time in MLB history a team has allowed no hits over eight or nine innings and still lost, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer's Bobby Nightengale.

The Reds aren't awarded a combined nine-inning no-hitter because the Pirates didn't bat in the ninth inning as the home team.

Cincinnati owns an MLB-worst 9-26 record following the loss.
