Odorizzi walked three batters and struck out five on 120 pitches through 7.1 innings pitched.
Starter Jake Odorizzi led the Twins to a 3–1 win over the Yankees Wednesday night with a strong no-hitter bid into the eighth inning.
Odorizzi had a no-hitter intact through seven innings at Target Field, but Greg Bird ended the bid with an RBI double to lead off the eighth.
The righty was going for the Twins' first no-no since 2011, walking three batters and striking out five on 120 pitches in 7.1 IP.
After running up a high pitch count early in the game, Odorizzi later retired the Yankees' Nos. 3–4–5 hitters in the seventh with just seven pitches.
Odorizzi entered Wednesday night's contest with a 4.57 ERA and 148 strikeouts in 29 games. The pitcher showcased his defensive skills on a sliding play on a grounder to retire Didi Gregorius in the fifth inning.
Aaron Hicks threatened to break up Odorizzi's no-hitter in the seventh, but Logan Forsythe recorded the out with a slick diving play at second base.
