Velasquez takes no-hitter into 7th, Phils beat Rockies 9-3

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Vince Velasquez took a no-hitter two outs into the seventh inning, Rhys Hoskins and Nick Williams hit solo homers and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Colorado Rockies 9-3 Thursday.
Trevor Story lined Velasquez’s 105th pitch — a curve — to left for an RBI double, ending Velasquez’s bid for the fourth no-hitter in the majors this season.
Velasquez (5-7) got a standing ovation as he walked off the mound after the hit. The hard-throwing righty looked nothing like the pitcher who allowed 10 runs against the Brewers last Friday. He dominated the Rockies, giving up one hit and two runs with six strikeouts in 6 2/3 innings.
Velasquez retired 20 of the first 21 batters.
