Arizona's Merrill Kelly loses no-hit bid in 7th at Texas

Arizona Diamondbacks starting pitcher Merrill Kelly (29) delivers a pitch against the Texas Rangers in the first inning of a baseball game Tuesday, July 28, 2020 in Arlington, Texas.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Arizona Diamondbacks right-hander Merrill Kelly lost his no-hit bid with one out in the seventh inning when Rougned Odor hit a solo homer for the Texas Rangers on Tuesday night.

Before Odor homered on Kelly's 76th pitch, the Rangers have had only two runners - Joey Gallo on a walk in the second, and an error that allowed a runner before a double play in the sixth.

They scored three unearned runs in the first inning before Kelly threw his first pitch.

A Houston native, Kelly was facing the Rangers for the first time.

Texas is playing its first season in a new $1.2 billion stadium with a retractable roof.
