Update (9:01 PM EDT): It’s over. With two outs in the seventh, C.J. Cron poked a single to right field to break up Fulmer’s no-hit bid.

Tigers rookie Michael Fulmer has held the Angels hitless through six innings thus far in Wednesday’s start in Anaheim. The right-hander has walked one, accounting for the lone blemish, while striking out six on 68 pitches.

The Tigers have backed Fulmer with two runs of support. Ian Kinsler delivered an RBI single in the fifth inning and Jarrod Saltalamacchia followed with an RBI single of his own in the sixth.

If Fulmer can finish the final three innings without allowing a hit, he would become the first Tiger to throw a no-hitter since Justin Verlander no-hit the Blue Jays on May 7, 2011. The Angels were last victims of a no-hitter on September 11, 1999 when the Twins’ Eric Milton accomplished the feat.

We’ll keep you updated as Fulmer navigates the seventh, eighth, and ninth innings.

Update (9:16 PM ET): Aaaaaand it’s over. Just like that. Starlin Castro led off the eighth inning with a solo home run to left field. That ends the shutout bid as well, obviously.

Padres starter Chris Paddack has kept the Marlins hitless through seven innings on Wednesday evening in Miami. The right-hander has allowed two base runners on a throwing error and a walk while striking out seven on 82 pitches.

The Padres’ offense provided Paddack with three runs of support, all coming in the fourth on Greg Garcia‘s RBI single and a two-run home run by Austin Hedges.

Paddack, 23, entered Wednesday’s start carrying a 2.84 ERA with an 87/18 K/BB ratio across 82 1/3 innings in his rookie campaign.

Among all 30 teams, the Padres are the only one without a no-hitter. They came into the league in 1969. The Marlins were last victims of a no-hitter on September 28, 2014 when Jordan Zimmermann — then with the Nationals — accomplished the feat.
