Associated Press

Michael Wacha of the St. Louis Cardinals has lost his no-hit bid against Pittsburgh on a leadoff single in the ninth inning by rookie Colin Moran.

Moran fouled off the first three pitches before lining a solid single to right field Sunday.

Wacha was pulled following the hit, and left to a standing ovation at Busch Stadium after throwing 111 pitches.

Wacha struck out eight and walked two.

St. Louis leads 5-0.
