Joe Mauer's clean single to center field with one out in the ninth inning broke up the no-hit bid of four Texas Rangers pitchers.
The Rangers beat the Minnesota Twins 4-0 on Monday night in the
fifth no-hitter this season broken up in the ninth inning.
Starter Rich Harden was activated from the disabled list earlier
in the day and he went 6 2-3 innings before being lifted after
throwing 111 pitches. Matt Harrison got the final out of the
seventh. Darren O'Day pitched the eighth and All-Star closer
Neftali Feliz got one in the ninth before Mauer singled.
Texas prevailed in the matchup of division leaders but fell two
outs shy of its first no-hitter since Kenny Rogers' perfect game
against California on July 28, 1994.
