Tigers’ Sanchez takes no-no into eighth

We had another no-hitter broken up in the latter innings on Friday, as the Detroit Tigers’ Anibal Sanchez took a no-no against the Toronto Blue Jays into the eighth inning.

Former Tiger Ezequiel Cabrera broke up the bid with a one-out single to left field. The Blue Jays went on to score six runs in the inning, but the Tigers held on an 8-6 victory.

Sanchez in 2006 threw a no-hitter for the Florida Marlins, topping the Arizona Diamondbacks 2-0 at Pro Player Stadium. His feat broke the longest no-hitter drought in Major League baseball history in terms of number of games played, with the games between Randy Johnson’s 2004 perfect game and Sanchez’s 2006 no-no reaching 6,364.
