The Athletics’ Sonny Gray took a no-no bid into the eighth inning Monday night before giving up a no-out single, ensuring that Bob Feller’s 75-year-old feat of throwing baseball’s only Opening Day no-hitter remains intact.

Gray’s effort was the best 2015 Opening Day effort of many. The Washington Nationals’ Max Scherzer and the Cleveland Indians Cory Kluber’ no-hit their Opening Day opponents through 5 2/3 innings on Monday.

Also on Monday, the Detroit Tigers’ David Price threw 4 1/3 innings of perfect ball before the Minnesota Twins’ Kennys Vargas broke it up with a one-out single.

The Toronto Blue Jays’ Drew Hutchinson threw 3 2/3 no-hit innings before the New York Yankees’ Brian McCann singled to right.

Feller, who threw an Opening Day no-no for the Cleveland Indians on August 16, 1940, tossed two additional no-hitters for Cleveland.
