Verlander throws no-hitter

TORONTO (AP) - Justin Verlander has thrown his second career no-hitter and the second in the big leagues this week, leading the Detroit Tigers to a 9-0 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday.

Verlander barely missed a perfect game. The only runner he allowed came with one out in the eighth inning when J.P. Arencibia walked on a full count, with Verlander's 12th pitch to the rookie just an inch or two outside.

Minnesota's Francisco Liriano pitched a no-hitter against the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night.
