- Tigers' Zimmermann loses perfect game in 7th vs Blue Jays
TORONTO (AP) — Detroit Tigers right-hander Jordan Zimmermann has lost his perfect game in Toronto with two outs in the seventh inning on an infield single.
Teoscar Hernandez hit a grounder up the middle that second baseman Josh Harrison smothered, but the throw was late and wide Thursday.
Hall of Famer Bob Feller is the only pitcher to throw a no-hitter on opening day, doing it for Cleveland against the Chicago White Sox on April 16, 1940. The Indians won 1-0.
Zimmermann pitched a no-hitter for Washington in 2014 against the Marlins.
The Tigers-Blue Jays game is scoreless.
