Detroit’s Sanchez Comes Within 2 Outs of 1st 2013 MLB No-Hitter

May 25 (Bloomberg) -- Anibal Sanchez of the Detroit Tigers came within two outs of throwing the first no-hitter of the Major League Baseball season, striking out 12 and settling for a one-hitter in a 6-0 defeat of the visiting Minnesota Twins.

Joe Mauer had a line-drive single up the middle with one out in the ninth inning to end the bid by Sanchez for his second career no-hitter. Sanchez, 29, threw a no-hitter as a member of the Florida Marlins against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sept. 6, 2006.

Sanchez’s one-hitter last night came four weeks after he set a franchise record with 17 strikeouts in a 10-0 victory against the Atlanta Braves at Detroit’s Comerica Park.
