Blue Jays’ Aaron Sanchez loses no-hitter in seventh inning vs. Red Sox

Sunday October 2nd, 2016

Blue Jays starter Aaron Sanchez had his no-hitter against the Red Sox broken up by a Hanley Ramirez solo home run with two outs in the seventh that required an official review.

Through six hitless innings, Sanchez had thrown 80 pitches and struck out six, while walking a pair of hitters.

The 24-year-old was aiming for the second no-hitter of the season, after Cubs ace Jake Arrieta tossed one on April 21. The no-no would have been the second in franchise history, after Dave Steib’s on Sept. 2, 1990.

With a win, the Blue Jays can clinch a spot in the AL wild card game. The Red Sox are also looking to grab home field advantage from the Indians with a victory.
