Blue Jays' Estrada has no-hitter thru 7 vs Red Sox
BOSTON (AP) Marco Estrada of the Toronto Blue Jays is pitching a no-hitter through seven innings against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park.
The right-hander has walked three and struck out four, throwing 98 pitches Sunday. The Blue Jays are ahead 5-0 against the AL East leaders.
The Red Sox haven't been no-hit in Fenway since Detroit's Jim Bunning did it on July 20, 1958.
Estrada walked the first two batters he faced before Xander Bogaerts bunted into a forceout. Estrada walked Hanley Ramirez leading off the second, but has retired 18 straight against a hard-hitting Boston lineup.
Right fielder Jose Bautista made a running grab on Hanley Ramirez to end the seventh. Center fielder Kevin Pillar made a nice over-the-shoulder catch on Travis Shaw's deep drive in the fourth.
Last June, Estrada took no-hit bids into the eighth inning in consecutive starts before they were broken up.
