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.
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.
