It took until the eighth inning and it took a blooper dropping in front of an outfielder who appeared to have a play on the ball for the Houston Astros to land their first hit of the game.
Houston's Aledmys Diaz led off the top of the eighth with a flare off Braves reliever Tyler Matzek that barely landed in front of left fielder Eddie Rosario.
The Astros had zero hits through seven innings as the Braves were bidding for the first no-hitter in the World Series since the New York Yankees Don Larsen tossed a perfect game in 1956.
Pitcher Ian Anderson started and went five innings. Relievers A.J. Minter and Luke Jackson each threw one inning. All the Astros had until the eighth were three walks and two hit batsmen.
According to Sarah Langs, a reporter/producer for MLB, Atlanta was the first team with a no-hitter through the first seven innings of a World Series game since the 1967 World Series when Red Sox pitcher Jim Lonborg went 7.2 hitless in Game 2.
