Tampa's Matt Garza no-hits Tigers

Tampa Bay righthander Matt Garza delivered the first no-hitter in the history of the franchise Monday night at Tropicana Field, leading the Rays past the Tigers, 5-0. Garza, who threw 120 pitches on the night, walked just one and struck out six while posting the majors' fifth no-hitter of the season. Garza and Detroit starting pitcher Max Scherzer were actually throwing combined no-hitters until the sixth inning when Tampa designated hitter Matt Joyce blasted a grand slam to break up Scherzer's bid and give Garza more than enough run support.

The manager noted that Martinez should catch the first two games of the series, with Kevin Cash spelling him in Wednesday's 3:35 pm start.

 

As for Jacoby Ellsbury, who went 1-for-3 while DHing for the Gulf Coast League Red Sox, Francona said that the outfielder will be back in the field on Tuesday for approximately half a game. Mike Lowell,...
