It's been a tough baseball season for Cincinnati Reds fan Kirk Herbstreit.

The ESPN college football analyst, who will also cover the NFL for Amazon this fall, hasn't had much to cheer about so far this spring.

The Reds delivered a no-hitter on Sunday, though!

Unfortunately - shockingly - the no-hitter came in a loss. Seriously.

Herbstreit took to Twitter following the game.

"Whelp. Don’t see that very often. Reds just NO HIT the Pirates on a Sunday afternoon at PNC Park…and LOST THE GAME 1-0!!!!! Been that kind of start to the season. Again the Pirates didn’t get a hit and walk away a winner. 3rd time that’s happened in @MLB HISTORY!" he tweeted.

The Reds dropped to 9-26 on the season with the loss, while the Pirates improved to 15-19.

This is the first time an MLB team has won a game with zero hits since 2008.
