Marlins No-Hit Tigers

            LAKELAND -- Ricky Nolasco and two Marlins relievers combined on a no-hitter in a 2-0 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Sunday.

            The Tigers managed only three baserunners, two of which were erased on double plays, as the three Marlins pitchers combined to face one more than the minimum 27 batters.

            Nolasco, who will likely be the Marlins' Opening Day starter, struck out seven, issued a walk, and hit a batter during his 7-inning performance.

            Dan Meyer and Leo Nunez pitched the last two innings for the Marlins to complete the no-hitter.

            The Tigers have not been no-hit in a regular-season game since Randy Johnson did it to them in 1990. The Tigers lineup was minur four regulars involved in the World Baseball Classic: Miguel Cabrera, Magglio Ordonez, Curtis Granderson and Carlos Guillen.

            The Marlins have had four pitchers throw regular-season no-hitters: Kevin Brown, Al Leiter, A.J. Burnett and Anibal Sanchez.
