Tillman has not allowed a ... (update again)

But Jeremy Accardo has.

With two outs in the seventh, B.J. Upton singles up the middle to end the Orioles' potential combined no-hitter against the Rays.

Orioles starter Chris Tillman wasn't exactly dominant tonight.

He walked three. And his pitch count was way too high, throwing 101 pitches and just 58 strikes in six innings.

But this is his line, and read it carefully: 6 IP, 0H, 0R, 3BB, 5Ks.

Jeremy Accardo entered in the seventh and retired two before Upton's single.

This wasn't new territory for the 22-year-old Tillman. He threw a Triple-A no-hitter against Gwinnett last April 28. And he threw 6 1/3 hitless innings against Texas on July 10 on his way to a two-hit performance.
