ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Michael Fulmer took a no-hitter into the seventh inning and completed 7 2/3 dominant innings to lift the Detroit Tigers over the Los Angeles Angels 3-0 on Wednesday.

The rookie right-hander shut down the Angels a day after they scored 11 runs on 17 hits. Fulmer (5-1) did not allow a hit until C.J. Cron’s broken-bat single on a 98 mph fastball with two outs in the seventh.

Fulmer allowed two hits, struck out eight and walked two. He has won his last four decisions and has a 3.24 ERA this season.

Francisco Rodriguez got the final four outs for Detroit to record his 15th save.

Matt Shoemaker (3-6) allowed two runs in seven innings while striking out eight for Los Angeles.
