LOS ANGELES (AP) — Angels rookie Reid Detmers pitched the second major league no-hitter this season, benefiting from a seventh-inning error, as Los Angeles beat the Tampa Rays 12-0. Bay on Tuesday night.
The 22-year-old left-hander threw a career-high 108 pitches in his 11th major league start, striking out two and walking one. He completed the 12th no-hitter in franchise history when Yandy Diaz hit shortstop Andrew Velazquez to end the game.
“I just passed out,” Detmers said. “I do not know”.
He got a crucial help from the official scorer in the seventh.
Brett Phillips came in with one out when first baseman Jared Walsh dove to his right and missed Phillips’ play. The crowd, Reid Detmers, threw the second no-hitter to 39,313 people at Angel Stadium cheered and Walsh cheered moments later when the video scoreboard showed the play was ruled an error.
ASTROS 5, TWINS 0
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Justin Verlander lost his fourth no-hitter by five outs but still faced the minimum through eight innings, and Houston beat Minnesota for its eighth straight win.
Twins third baseman Gio Urshela singled to right field with one out in the eighth inning to end Verlander’s attempt. The 39-year-old right-hander, in his first season back from Tommy John surgery, finished his eighth getting Royce Lewis to stubbornly doublehead.
Jeremy Peña drove in the first two runs for the Astros. Alex Bregman also had two runs, including a double to left in the fifth that drove in to Jose Altuve.
Twins starter Joe Ryan (3-2) struggled to find the strike zone. The right-hander issued a walk in each of his five innings and allowed four runs.
YANKEES 6, BLUE JAYS 5
Giancarlo Stanton tied it with a modest three-run shot in the sixth, and the Yankees rallied for their 14th win in 16 games after three Toronto ejections left the furious Blue Jays seeing red.
George Springer hit a walk-off home run for Toronto, and Lourdes Gurriel Jr. hit a tiebreaking double in the eighth that helped the Blue Jays take a 5-3 lead.
No. 9 hitter Jose Trevino and DJ LeMahieu walked back-to-back with one out in the ninth from Jordan Romano (1-2) before Judge sent a 1-2 slider hung 450 feet into the second deck of the left Garden.
Wandy Peralta (1-0) pitched a no-hitter ninth for the win.
WHITE SOX 4, GUARDIANES 1
CHICAGO (AP) — Gavin Sheets homered in his second straight game, Tim Anderson had three hits and 2 RBIs, and Chicago shook off last night’s big meltdown by beating Cleveland.
Lucas Giolito (2-1) went seven innings and gave up just one run on Josh Naylor’s home run to earn his second straight start. He allowed six hits, struck out five and walked one.
The White Sox won their seventh of eight games, with the only blemish blowing a six-run lead on Monday night’s ninth and losing in 11 innings.
Cal Quantrill (1-2) went 6 1/3 innings, allowing four runs on 10 hits.
ORIOLES 5, CARDINALS 3
ST. LOUIS (AP) – Cedric Mullins and Tyler Nevin each homered and Kyle Bradish struck out 11 in seven strong innings, leading Baltimore over St. Louis .

Bradish (1-1) pitched seven innings for his longest outing this season and first career win. He allowed four hits, including Bader’s home run. Felix Bautista got the last out for his first career save.
Nevin gave Baltimore a 3-0 lead when he hit a one-out homer into the left-field bullpen in the fourth, prompting St. Louis to retire rookie pitcher Packy Naughton (0-1).
RANGERS 6, ROYALS 4
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) – Corey Seager snapped an 0-for-16 streak with two home runs, Martin Perez pitched a solid 6 1/3 innings and Texas opened a nine-game home series with a win over Kansas City.
Perez (1-2) struck out six people without getting a walk and was charged with four runs, but only one of them was earned.
Joe Barlow pitched a perfect ninth for his sixth save in as many chances.
Texas had three straight singles from Brad Keller (1-3) after Seager’s two-out homer in the first off Kole Calhoun’s two-run shot that made it 3-0.
BREWERS 5, REDS 4
CINCINNATI (AP) — Josh Hader reached 500 career strikeouts, Luis Urias hit a game-tying homer and made a game-winning catch, and Milwaukee snapped Cincinnati’s two-game win streak.
Jace Peterson broke a 1-1 tie in the sixth with the first of his two doubles for the NL Central leaders Brewers, who ended a three-game losing streak.
Hader worked around an inning walk in a hitless ninth and became only the third pitcher with saves in his first 12 appearances of a season after Lee Smith in 1994 and Jose Mesa in 2005.
Willy Peralta (2-1) allowed one run on four hits in 5 2/3 innings with a season-high eight strikeouts and one walk. Hunter Greene (1-5) lost his fifth straight start since he won in his major league debut at Atlanta on April 10.
