KANSAS CITY, MO. (KCTV) --- On the night the Kansas City Chiefs started its defense of a Super Bowl championship, a rookie from the city's baseball team nearly made history.

Kansas City Royals pitcher Brady Singer came four outs short of a no-hitter Thursday against the Cleveland Indians.

Indians catcher Austin Hedges broke up the no-hitter in the bottom of the eighth inning.

He finished the game allowing just that one hit over eight innings.

It would have been the fifth no-hitter in franchise history. 

Bret Saberhagen threw the team's most recent no-no in 1991.
