Marcus Stroman had a no-hitter through six innings  for Team USA in the World Baseball Classic final against Puerto Rico, before surrendering a hit to Angel Pagan in the top of the seventh inning.

Stroman otherwise issued just a walk with three strikeouts, and threw 73 pitches before being lifted immediately after the hit. The U.S. staked him a 7–0 lead.

The U.S. looks ticketed for its first WBC title if all holds steady.
