Sports: Boyd Misses No-Hitter in 9th

White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson doubled to left to stop Boyd from pitching the 8th no-hitter in Tigers history. Tiger bats got started early. Ian Kinsler started the game with a single, stole second, and scored on a single from Jeimer Candelario. That would be the only run Matt Boyd would need, but he got 11 more. The Tigers had home runs from Nick Castellanos and Mikie Mahtook. Jeimer Candelario capped the scoring with a home run to right center in the 8th to make it 12-0. The Tigers will host Oakland for three, beginning Monday night. Buck Farmer starts for the Tigers. Hear the game at 6:45 on 95.3 WBCK.
