Anthony Swarzak of the Minnesota Twins had a no-hitter through 7 1/3 innings against the Angels at Target Field,but a double by Peter Bourjos with one out in the eighth inning broke it up. Unfortunately for Swarzak he does not have the lead. Through seven and a half innings, the game is a scoreless tie, thanks to Jered Weaver, who has nearly matched Swarzak pitch for pitch.
After Russell Branyan began the inning with a groundout to second base, Bourjos lined a clean double to left field to break up the no-hitter. Pinch hitter Hank Conger popped out to third baseman Danny Valencia in foul territory for the second out, then Alexi Amarista flew out to center field to end the Angels' best scoring threat of the night.
The Twins have the lowest-scoring offense in the American League, averaging 3.45 runs per game entering tonight's contest. Only the Padres and Dodgers have been worse in all of baseball. Weaver has allowed two hits and a walk through seven innings so far, lowering his season ERA to 2.15.
