BOSTON - Marco Estrada of the Toronto Blue Jays is pitching a no-hitter through six innings against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park.

The right-hander has walked three and struck out four, throwing 82 pitches Sunday. The Blue Jays lead 5-0.

Estrada walked the first two batters he faced before Xander Bogaerts bunted into a forceout. Estrada walked Hanley Ramirez leading off the second, but has retired 15 straight.

Centre fielder Kevin Pillar made a nice over-the-shoulder catch on Travis Shaw's deep drive in the fourth.

Last June, Estrada took no-hitters into the eighth inning in consecutive starts before they were broken up.

The Blue Jays have carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning in three of the last four games against Boston.
