Blue Jays Lose in Cleveland
Trevor Bauer was pulled by manager Terry Francona after seven hitless innings and 117 pitches, and watched from the dugout as Toronto's Freddy Galvis broke up Cleveland's bid for a combined no-hitter with a leadoff single in the ninth inning of the Indians' 4-1 win.
Bauer was attempting to throw Cleveland's first no-hitter in 38 years on the 25th anniversary of Progressive Field's opening but was taken out as his pitch count increased.
Bauer was six outs away from completing his MLB no-hitter, when Francona removed him as a precautionary measure.
Jon Edwards got two outs in the eighth before closer Brad Hand worked out of a bases-loaded jam.
Rookie right-hander Trent Thompson is slated to start for Toronto Friday night against Cleveland righty Shane Bieber.
