Shaun Marcum took a no-hit bid into the seventh inning on opening day for Toronto before the Texas Rangers rallied for a 5-4 win Monday on Jarrod Saltalamacchia's RBI single in the bottom of the ninth.
Texas scored twice in the ninth off Blue Jays closer Jason
Michael Young hit a leadoff double before Josh Hamilton took a
called third strike. Vladimir Guerrero had an infield single,
Nelson Cruz tied it with an RBI double and Chris Davis was
intentionally walked. Saltalamacchia's fly to right-center field
was over the drawn-in outfield.
Marcum missed last season recovering from elbow surgery. He took
a no-hitter into the seventh, when he gave up a one-out single to
Guerrero before Cruz hit a tying three-run homer.
