UNDATED (AP) -- Minnesota's Joe Mauer ruined Anibel (AHN'-ih-behl) Sanchez's bid for the first no-hitter of the Major League Baseball season with a one-out single in the ninth inning. Sanchez finished with a one-hitter as the Detroit Tigers blanked the Minnesota Twins 6-0.
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 innings against Atlanta on April 26.
Sanchez struck out 12 on Friday and allowed three walks. He is 5-4.
It's the second time this season a no-hit bid was broken up in the ninth. On April 2, Texas starter Yu Darvish had a no-hitter with two out in the ninth when Houston's Marwin Gonzalez singled in a 7-0 Rangers victory.
In other baseball:
---- The New York Yankees beat Tampa Bay 9-4, but it was a Pyrrhic victory. Yankees right fielder Curtis Granderson was hit on the left hand by a pitch, which X-rays showed a broken knuckle on his pinkie finger. Granderson missed the first 38 games this season with a broken right forearm, the result of a hit by pitch in his first at-bat at spring training.
---- Jordan Zimmermann is the NL's first eight-game winner as the Washington Nationals trimmed Philadelphia 5-2. Steve Lombardozzi's (lohm-bar-DOH'-zeez) two-run double in a four-run fifth inning was the big hit. Zimmermann is 8-2.
-- Chris Davis hit his major league-leading 16th home run, Nick Markakis had three hits and three RBIs and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Toronto Blue Jays 10-6.
-- Joey Votto extended his hitting streak to 12 games with a homer, and Ryan Hanigan and Brandon Phillips also homered in the Cincinnati Reds to their fourth straight win, 7-4 over the Chicago Cubs.
SENIOR PGA CHAMPIONSHIP
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Lefty Russ Cochran and Kenny Perry each shot 5-under 66 to share the second round lead in the Senior PGA Championship. They're at 7-under par after 36 holes.
Japan's Kiyoshi Murota (ky-YOH'-shee myoo-ROH'-tah) was two strokes back after a 70. Jay Haas and Duffy Waldorf matched Loren Roberts at 4 under.
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) --Matt Kuchar (KOO'-char) has taken a one-shot lead over Graham DeLaet when play was suspended due to inclement weather late in the second round of the PGA's Colonial. Kuchar is 10 under par through his 15 holes. DeLaet shot a second-round 3-under-67 and is 9-under-par.
There were 54 players still on the course, three still with eight holes to play, when play was stopped. The second round at Hogan's Alley will be completed Saturday morning.
PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas (AP) -- Heather Bowie Young made five straight birdies while jumping from one side of the golf course to the other. Silvia Cavalleri was hitting the ball so well Friday she was sorry the Bahamas Classic was held on only 12 holes.
Bowie Young and Cavalleri were tied for the lead at 6-under 39.
That's right, a first-round 39.
Severe flooding earlier in the week left much of the Ocean Club under water. The LPGA decided to use the holes that were available.
The hope was to complete three rounds of 12 holes to make the inaugural Bahamas Classic official.
MIAMI (AP) -- The Heat and Pacers are squaring off with Indiana looking to get a win before the series heads to Indianapolis. Once again, Indiana is giving Miami all it can handle after the Pacers lost the opener 103-102 in overtime.
Indiana is leading the Heat 76-74 at the start of the fourth quarter.
Game 3 will take place Sunday night on the Pacers home court.
By the way, if you have wondered just how dominating the Heat have been this season, they've won 46 of their last 49 games.
PITTSBURGH (AP) --Too much talent. Too much skill. Too much composure.
The Pittsburgh Penguins have reached the NHL Eastern Conference finals and will play either the New York Rangers or Boston Bruins. James Neal had his first career hat trick as the Penguins eliminated Ottawa in five games, 6-2. The Penguins are in the conference final for the first time since 2009.
Kris Letang, Evgeni Malkin and Brenden Morrow also scored for the Pens. Tomas Vokoun (voh-KOON') made 29 saves as top-seeded Pittsburgh strolled to the next round.
PARIS (AP) -- The seedings for next week's French Open have been announced with Novak Djokovic (NOH'-vak JOH'-kuh-vich) leading the way for the men and Serena Williams the women. Rounding out the top-three seeds for the men are Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal (rah-fay-ehl nah-DAHL'). Following Williams are Maria Sharapova (shah-rah-POH'-vah) and Victoria Azarenka (ah-zah-REN'-kuh).
The way things are set up, Nadal and Djokovic, the finalists last year, could meet in the semifinals.
