MIAMI (AP) Rookie right-hander Chris Paddack of the San Diego Padres has pitched six hitless innings against the Miami Marlins.
The Padres, who played their first game in 1969, are the only team in the majors to never throw a no-hitter.
Cesar Puello was the first Marlins hitter to reach first base on a throwing error by shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. to lead off the sixth inning. Yadiel Rivera walked with two outs in the inning. Paddack ended the sixth by tagging a diving Miguel Rojas on a close play at first base. The out call was upheld by a replay review of 2 minutes, 29 seconds.
Paddack has struck out seven and walked one with 76 pitches. The Padres lead 3-0 at Marlins Park.
Paddack is pitching for the first time against the Marlins, who drafted him in 2015 and traded him to San Diego the following year.
