Porcello Loses No-Hitter; Tigers Strike First: Twins 0, Tigers 1

Porcello gave up a hit — a comebacker off his ass — which was promptly converted into a double play. He’s still faced the minimum through two.

Blackburn recorded an out in the bottom of the second, before plunking Laird way up and in right below the back of his neck. Two hits later, and Laird scored the first run of the game, giving Detroit the early 1-0 lead. RBI goes to shortstop Ramon Santiago.

With runners on first and third and two outs, Polanco grounded out to Blackburn, who has already thrown 41 pitches through two innings.
