The Detroit Tigers starter is attempting to throw the first no-hitter of the season.

Detroit Tigers starter Anibal Sanchez is attempting to throw the first no-hitter of the 2013 season, currently sitting six outs away from no-hitting the Minnesota Twins.

Sanchez has looked sharp against the Twins, striking out eight hitters in seven innings while issuing two walks. The right-handed starter walked Jamey Carroll to lead off the game and issued a one-out walk to Chris Parmelee in the top of the second inning, but has retired the last 17 Minnesota batters.

Sanchez threw a no-hitter as a member of the Florida Marlins on September 6, 2006 against the Arizona Diamondbacks. The starter fanned six Diamondbacks while issuing four walks to become only the 19th rookie pitcher since 1900 to throw a no-hitter.

Justin Verlander is the last Tigers starter to throw a no-hitter. Verlander threw a no-hitter on May 11, 2011 against the Toronto Blue Jays. It was the second no-hitter of Verlander's career, the first coming against the Milwaukee Brewers on June 12, 2007.
