KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -Toronto right-hander Shaun Marcum was led off the field by Blue Jays trainer George Poulis with apparent leg cramps after losing his bid for a no-hitter in the seventh inning against the Kansas City Royals on Friday night.
Marcum, who was born in Kansas City, did not allow a hit until Billy Butler's infield single up the middle with two-out in the seventh. Shortstop John McDonald dove for the ball, but as he rolled over he lost control of it before he could make a throw.
It was the second time this season Marcum had pitched at least six no-hit innings.
