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.
