Blue Jays' Sanchez loses no-hitter on disputed homer

BOSTON (AP) Aaron Sanchez of the Toronto Blue Jays had his no-hitter broken up with two outs in the sixth inning when Hanley Ramirez hit a home run over the left-field foul pole.

Although Sanchez argued the ball was foul, third base umpire Quinn Wolcott immediately signaled for a homer. After a review, the call stood.

The next batter, Xander Bogaerts, singled.

Sanchez struck out six, walked two and hit a batter through seven innings. The game was tied 1-1.

Toronto can clinch a wild-card spot by beating the AL East champion Red Sox.

Sanchez missed two weeks in September because of a blister before starting twice late in the month. He is in contention for the AL ERA title.
