Toronto's Brandon Morrow lost a no-hitter with two outs in the ninth and the Blue Jays went on to beat Tampa Bay 1-0.

Morrow missed a chance at recording the sixth no-hitter of the major league season when the Rays' Evan Longoria singled off of second basaeman Aaron Hill's glove. Morrow then recorded his 17th strikeout when he got Dan Johnson to end the game.

Morrow got off to a great start by striking out the side in the first inning.

Johnson reached base twice, when he walked to lead off the second and was safe on an error in the seventh. Ben Zobrist also worked a walk off of Morrow in the ninth.

Vernon Wells gave Morrow all the support he needed with an RBI single in the first inning off of Rays starter Andy Sonnenstine (SAHN'-ihn-styn). Wells later left the game with a dislocated big toe on his right foot. He suffered the injury jumping against the outfield fence to catch a ball hit by Zobrist that helped keep the no-hit bid going.

The last no-hitter was pitched by the Rays' Matt Garza 13 days ago. Tampa Bay has been no-hit twice this season.
