MIAMI (AP) - Florida's Anibal Sanchez took a no-hitter into the ninth inning before giving up a broken-bat leadoff single to Colorado's Dexter Fowler, and the Marlins beat the Rockies 4-1 on Friday night.
Sanchez (1-1) struck out nine and allowed one unearned run in the bid for his second career no-hitter. He walked three, including Fowler to lead off the game. A two-out fielding error by first baseman Gaby Sanchez allowed Fowler to score.
On Sanchez's 116th pitch of the night, Fowler singled to right and ended the no-hitter.
Sanchez and Chris Coghlan homered for the Marlins, who won their fourth straight.
