BALTIMORE (AP) — Toronto Blue Jays right-hander Aaron Sanchez has lost his no-hit bid in the eighth inning on a leadoff double by Tim Beckham that bounced through third baseman Josh Donaldson’s legs.
Sanchez was trying to throw the second no-hitter in Blue Jays history. The first was by Dave Stieb against Cleveland in 1990.
Beckham opened the eighth with a hard grounder that skipped through Donaldson’s legs on Tuesday night. Anthony Santander followed with a clean single to right.
Sanchez had walked four and hit a batter in the first seven innings. Toronto had taken a 1-0 lead in the top of the eighth.
