Mike McGinnis/Getty Images(MILWAUKEE) — Dueling no-hit bids between Atlanta starting pitcher Aaron Harang and Milwaukee’s Matt Garza took center stage in the Braves’ (2-1) 1-0 victory over the Brewers (1-2) at Miller Park on Wednesday.

Atlanta third baseman Chris Johnson broke up Garza’s no-hitter with a two-out solo home run in the top of the seventh inning.  Harang lost his bid when Brewers outfielder Logan Schafer singled to open up the bottom of the seventh inning.

It was the first time both starting pitchers in a Major League Baseball game had not allowed a hit through six innings since June 13, 2010, when Ted Lilly of the Chicago Cubs and Gavin Floyd of the Chicago White Sox did it, according to STATS.
