SEATTLE (AP) Toronto right-hander Marco Estrada had a no-hitter broken up when Seattle's Robinson Cano led off the seventh inning with a single on Monday night.
Estrada had allowed just two baserunners in the opener of a key three-game series until Cano lined a 2-1 pitch back up the middle. Toronto holds a two-game lead over Seattle for the second AL wild card.
Estrada walked Cano and Nelson Cruz with two outs in the fourth inning. Kyle Seager followed with a line drive to center field, but Kevin Pillar made a sliding catch to save at least one run.

The right-hander has never completed a no-hitter, but he's been close. He lost a no-hit bid in the eighth inning against the Boston Red Sox on June 5, and also pitched hitless ball into the eighth inning in consecutive starts in June 2015.
