Plesac takes no-hitter into 8th as Indians top Mariners 4-2

SEATTLE (AP) — Zach Plesac came within six outs of Cleveland’s first no-hitter in 40 years, keeping the Seattle Mariners hitless into the eighth inning of the Indians’ 4-2 win. The anticipated debuts of Seattle prospects Jarred Kelenic and Logan Gilbert were overshadowed by a masterful pitching performance from Plesac. His bid for Cleveland’s first no-no since 1981 ended when J.P. Crawford led off the eighth with a line-drive single that just cleared the glove of leaping shortstop Amed Rosario. Plesac lost the shutout moments later when Dylan Moore hit a two-run homer, but the Indians held on in a tense ninth inning.
