      Sanchez loses no-hit bid in 9th, Tigers beat Twins

      Anibal Sanchez took a no-hitter into the ninth inning before Minnesota's Joe Mauer broke it up with a one-out single, and that was the only hit the Detroit right-hander allowed in the Tigers' 6-0 victory over the Twins on Friday night.

      Sanchez fell two outs shy of his second career no-hitter, but thanks to Mauer it was just another near miss this season. There have already been five one-hitters this year, according to STATS.

      It was Sanchez's second gem in about a month - he set a franchise record with 17 strikeouts in eight marvelous innings against Atlanta on April 26.

      Sanchez (5-4) struck out 12 on Friday and allowed three walks. Mauer lined a clean hit up the middle.
