Milwaukee Brewers

Jose Berrios strikes out 12 Milwaukee batters in six no-hit innings, Twins win 2-0

MILWAUKEE – The crazy thing about pitching six, but only six, innings without giving up a hit is, the focus often becomes more about what you didn't accomplish than what you did.

But not for Jose Berrios, who didn't argue when he was pulled from the best start of his All-Star career, who didn't campaign to complete his first no-hitter since high school — because he didn't know he hadn't given up a hit.

It was lower and more delicious than he intended, and Buxton ended the no-hit threat by drilling it onto an overhang in center field.

Alex Colome, who blew a three-run ninth-inning lead in Thursday's 6-5 loss in 10 innings, quickly dispatched the Brewers in the ninth, though the game was delayed for five minutes when home plate umpire C.B.

Bucknor was hit in the throat by a foul ball and Brewers trainer Dave Yeager nearly fainted.

Among pitchers who have faced at least 400 batters in interleague play (which began in 1997), only Hall of Famer Mariano Rivera has been stingier, allowing a .173 average.
