ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Yu Darvish came within one out of a no-hitter for the second time, giving up only a ninth-inning single to David Ortiz in the Texas Rangers' 8-0 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Friday night.

Darvish took a perfect game into the seventh before Ortiz reached on a two-out error by right fielder Alex Rios. The right-hander walked his next batter and another in the eighth but went into the ninth looking for the first no-hitter in the majors this season.

Dustin Pedroia grounded out and Shane Victorino struck out, bringing Ortiz to the plate. With the crowd in a frenzy, the big slugger hit a sharp grounder through Texas' defensive shift on the right side of the diamond for a clean single.
