Saladino triple ends combined no-hitter

The Detroit News

White Sox hitter Tyler Saladino tripled to center field off right-hander Neftalí Feliz, ending the Tigers' bid for a combined no-hitter in the ninth inning Tuesday at Comerica Park.

Adam Eaton singled Saladino home to tie the game 1-1.

The no-hitter appeared to be over in eighth when White Sox batter Alexei Ramirez was ruled safe at first after grounding Nick Castellanos at third. However, the ruling was overturned on video replay. Tigers reliever Drew VerHagen retired the next two White Sox hitters to end the inning.

The Tigers led 1-0 on James McCann's RBI single, which scored J.D. Martinez in the bottom of the seventh.

Left-hander Daniel Norris pitched five perfect innings for the Tigers while Buck Farmer struck out two hitters in the sixth as the pair have teamed to pitch perfect game through six innings.

Left-handed reliever Ian Krol opened the seventh by hitting lead-off batter Adam Eaton. He retired the next three hitters.

Norris, who came off the 15-day disabled list Sept. 16 with an right oblique strain, struck out four in five innings. He threw 63 pitches, 41 for strikes.
