Diamondbacks' Koch impresses in first major league start

WASHINGTON (AP) Arizona Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale wasn't sure what to expect from Matt Koch in his first major league start. He just knew it wouldn't be a long outing.

Koch knew it, too, and he made the most of his limited time on the mound, allowing one hit and two runs in five-plus innings as the Arizona Diamondbacks lost 4-2 to the Washington Nationals on Tuesday night.

The 25-year-old no-hit the NL East champions through five innings before Jose Lobaton singled to lead off the sixth. Walking pinch-hitter Wilmer Difo spelled the end of Koch's night at 69 pitches with a blister issue cropping up along the way.
