The Blue Jays’ Aaron Sanchez threw seven no-hit innings in Tuesday's 2–1 win over the Orioles, before Tim Beckham broke it up in the eighth with a leadoff double.
Beckham's hit went through third baseman Josh Donaldson's legs. Anthony Santander followed that up with a single to right.
Sanchez finished with four strikeouts, five walks, three hits and one earned run.
He threw 98 pitches through eight innings — going for eight innings for just the fifth time in his career.
The score was 0–0 until the top of the eighth when Toronto took a 1–0 lead.
The Orioles responded in the eighth to tie. The Blue Jays' Curtis Granderson hit a homer in the ninth to take the lead for good.
It would have been the second no-hitter in Blue Jays history.
