Blake Snell made another bid for the gem.
This didn’t work very well for Padres left-handers, as the San Diego bats were silenced again.
The Los Angeles Angels defeated Snell’s no-hitter no-run with two outs in the seventh inning and beat Padres 4-0 on Tuesday night.
Snell brought the perfect game to 7th place, walked two batters and allowed Jo Adell a two-run single on 96 pitches. Adele finished with 3 RBIs.
A week ago, Snell hit seven no-hitters in Arizona with a pitch count of 107. Padres won 3-0 with a total of 3 at bats.

His 132/3 consecutive hitless innings set a franchise record.
Snell has averaged .071 batting averages in the last four starts. According to STATS, this is the worst four-start span of a season since Johnny Vander Meer averaged 0.063 in a span that included his record no-hitter no-run in 1938.
The Padres are 1-3 at their start while trying to stay second in the NL wildcard race.
“Now he’s doing his job, etc. As a group, we have to get it,” said manager Jayce Tingler. “Ultimately, they must win when he is throwing the ball that way.”
The Padres were only four hits.
Snell (7-6) was aiming for his ninth major no-hitter no-run this year. This surpassed the record of eight sets in 1884, allowing overhand pitching for the first season.
Joe Musgrove launched a no-hitter no-hitter this year, throwing the first no-hitter no-hitter in San Diego’s history at the second start of the local team.
Snell retired the first 18 Angels batters on 66 pitches, followed by David Fletcher in 7th place. Luis Rengoo appeared to have defeated the infield hit bunt, but Padres appealed and a video replay showed that Snell tagged Rengoo before he got to the bag. The call has been overturned.
Snell defeated Phil Goserin before walking Jack Mayfield. Adele hit the liner to the left, ending Snell’s bid for Nono and defeating the scoreless tie.
“I felt good and was really efficient,” Snell said. “At the last inning, I was dissatisfied with the walk to Fletcher, especially when the pitch was called AllGame. I didn’t see if it was a ball or a strike, so it was a strike throughout the game.” Said.
“But you know, walk the score,” he added. “That was this season for me. Every time I walked someone, they scored every time for some reason …. theirs taking a lot of pitches they were swinging early on. Good job. It was hard at the last inning. “
Snell said he hung the slider on Adele. “I didn’t drop it where I wanted, and he hit. It’s a good job for him.”
It was the only hit Snell was allowed to hit 11 in 7 innings. He won the championship for the third time in a row with double-digit strikeouts, and this is the sixth time this year.
Snell turned the inconsistent season around with three strong starts. On August 25, he threw his career’s best 122 pitches in 7 2/3 innings and did not make a decision against rival Los Angeles Dodgers in San Diego’s 5-3, 16 innings home loss.
Snell was acquired on December 29th in a deal with the Tampa Bay Rays.
Jimmy Harget (2-1) threw two innings to win. The Padres continued to hold the second NL wildcard spot.
Rengifo took Emilio Pagan at home, leading 9th and 3rd place. Adele scored one RBI.
Shohei Ohtani wasn’t the Angels starting pitcher because there was no DH in the Interleague NL Park. The two-way star hit for the eighth time and singled off Tim Hill.
Angels starter Packy Naughton allowed two hits in five innings, hit five and walked two.
Manager Joe Maddon said the Angels will throw a bullpen game at the series finale on Wednesday night. RHP Yu Darvish (7-9, 4.05) is scheduled to start in the Padres.
