Francona 'hated' pulling Bauer with no-no, but 'it was the right thing'
Trevor Bauer's pitch count got the best of him.
The Cleveland Indians right-hander was removed in the seventh inning of Thursday's game against the Toronto Blue Jays with a no-hitter intact after throwing 117 pitches.
Bauer was dominant in his second start of the season, striking out eight batters, but also managed to walk six.
Jon Edwards came on in relief to a chorus of boos with the no-hitter intact and a 4-0 lead.
It's been a tough start to the season for Toronto. Bauer is the fourth pitcher to carry a no-hitter into the sixth inning against the Blue Jays this season, according to ESPN Stats & Info.
