Hiroki Kuroda No-Hit Bid Broken Up In Seventh Inning

During Tuesday night's game between the Texas Rangers and New York Yankees, Hiroki Kuroda took a no-hitter into the seventh inning before it was promptly broken up by Elvis Andrus. Midway through seven innings, the game is still scoreless.

Through the first six innings at Yankee Stadium, the New York starter allowed just two Texas baserunners on walks as he and Matt Harrison engaged in a true pitcher's duel.

The Rangers has been entirely ineffective at the plate until Elvis Andrus hit an infield single to lead off the seventh inning. Josh Hamilton flew out to deep right-center to advance Andrus to second base, but Adrian Beltre struck out. Although Andrus was able to advance to third on a wild pitch, Nelson Cruz was unable to bring him home and grounded out to end the inning.

Through six innings, Harrison has allowed just four hits and three walks, while striking out two.
