MLB: Rangers no-hit into 7th, rally to beat Blue Jays


By STEPHEN HAWKINS

ARLINGTON, Texas Shaun Marcum took a no-hit bid into the seventh inning on opening day for Toronto before the Texas Rangers rallied for a 5-4 win Monday on Jarrod Saltalamacchia's RBI single in the bottom of the ninth.

Texas scored twice in the ninth off Blue Jays closer Jason Frasor.

Michael Young hit a leadoff double before Josh Hamilton took a called third strike. Vladimir Guerrero had an infield single, Nelson Cruz tied it with an RBI double and Chris Davis was intentionally walked. Saltalamacchia's fly to right-center field was over the drawn-in outfield.

Marcum missed last season recovering from elbow surgery. He took a no-hitter into the seventh, when he gave up a one-out single to Guerrero before Cruz hit a tying three-run homer.
