Matt Moore came within an out of recording his first no-hitter as the San Francisco Giants beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-0 on Thursday.

Moore held the Dodgers hitless until Corey Seager blooped a single to right to end the bid with two outs in the ninth. Santiago Casilla came on in relief and forced Justin Turner to pop out to clinch the victory for the Giants.
