Nelson Cruz Ends Felix Hernandez No-Hit Bid With Solo Home Run In 8th Inning

Texas Rangers outfielder Nelson Cruz ended Seattle Mariners pitcher Felix Hernandez’s bid for a no-hitter Friday night with a solo home run to left-center field in the top of the 8th inning. The count was 1 ball and 0 strikes.

Hernandez had walked only batter to that point: Texas Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus in the top of the 1st inning.
