Anibal Sanchez comes within 2 outs of no-hitter

Detroit, MI (Sports Network) - Anibal Sanchez was two outs away from pitching a no-hitter Friday night, but Joe Mauer broke up the bid with a single up the middle.

Sanchez fanned 12 Minnesota batters while recording his sixth career shutout, as the Detroit Tigers blanked the Twins, 6-0, at Comerica Park, to send Minnesota to its 10th straight loss.

Sanchez (5-4), who threw 130 pitches, was trying to become the only active pitcher to throw a no-hitter with two different teams. He walked three batters in the one-hit performance.
