The Pacific Coast League has nullified a no-hitter thrown by Omaha pitcher Luis Mendoza after changing a ninth-inning error to a double.
The PCL says Wednesday that the Memphis Redbirds requested the league review an at-bat by Tyler Greene in the bottom of the ninth of Monday's game in Memphis.
Greene smacked a ball to deep left field that was misplayed by Omaha's David Lough. Lough was given an error, but the official scorer changed it to a hit shortly after the game.
An hour later, the play was again ruled an error.
Never miss a local story.
The league says it awarded Greene a double after reviewing replays and speaking with officials who were at the game.
The ruling wiped out what would have been Mendoza's second no-hitter thrown in PCL play. Omaha is the Triple-A affiliate of the Kansas City Royals.
Dodgers dump hitting coach
The Dodgers fired hitting coach Jeff Pentland on Wednesday, another dismal sign for a once proud franchise that has fallen on hard times. General Manager Ned Colletti announced the move before Wednesday's series finale against the Giants. Pentland was replaced by assistant Dave Hansen for the rest of the season.
"It was a very tough decision," Colletti said. "Pent has always been a good man and a very good hitting guy, but this is a reflection on how we're hitting." Los Angeles had a .250 team batting average and was second only to the Padres with the fewest runs scored in the National League when Pentland was fired.
Jeter documentary coming to HBO
The documentary about Derek Jeter's pursuit of career hit No. 3,000, with the shortstop wearing a microphone during the game when he reached the milestone, will premiere July 28. Major League Baseball Productions followed the Yankees captain for a one-hour HBO special called Derek Jeter 3K.
■ A few innings after making a costly error Wednesday, Ben Revere made up for it. The Twins center fielder and former Lexington Catholic standout dropped a bases-loaded fly ball by the Indians' Matt LaPorta, allowing two runs to score in the fourth inning. Revere took one away from LaPorta later, going back to the wall in the eighth with a runner at third and two outs to make a leaping, two-handed grab and keep the score tied.
■ The Tigers acquired veteran infielder Wilson Betemit from the Royals for two Class-A prospects: left-hander Antonio Cruz and catcher Julio Rodriguez. Betemit hit .281 in 57 games for the Royals.
■ Twins Manager Ron Gardenhire is still fighting a viral infection. Gardenhire left Wednesday's game against Cleveland early to seek another examination from a doctor because he wasn't feeling well. Gardenhire has been bothered by the illness for the last few weeks.
