Boston’s Porcello loses no-hit bid in 7th
BOSTON (AP) — Red Sox pitcher Rick Porcello lost his bid for a no-hitter when Yankees slugger Aaron Judge led off the seventh with a double.
Porcello stayed in after a 45-minute rain delay and retired the Yankees in order in the sixth. But Judge got New York’s first hit in the seventh, and Giancarlo Stanton followed with a single.
Stanton became the Yankees’ first baserunner when he was hit by a pitch in the fourth.
Porcello got out of the jam in the seventh, preserving Boston’s 6-0 lead on Thursday night. He has six strikeouts and no walks.
