BOSTON (AP) — Detroit Tigers starter Max Scherzer held the Boston Red Sox hitless for 5 2-3 innings in Game 2 of the AL championship series on Sunday night.

Scherzer had a no-hitter until Shane Victorino singled with two outs in the sixth. It was the third straight playoff game in which the Tigers starter had a no-hitter after five.

Justin Verlander took a no-hitter into the seventh inning in the finale of the AL division series against Oakland on Thursday. In Game 1 of the ALCS, Anibal Sanchez left the game after six innings with a no-hitter intact. Three relievers stretched it into the ninth before Daniel Nava got Boston’s only hit with two outs to go.
