HOUSTON (AP) — Aaron Sanchez has a no-hitter through six innings in his Houston Astros debut against the Seattle Mariners, three days after he was acquired from Toronto at the trade deadline.

Sanchez has struck out six, walked two and hit a batter with a pitch Saturday night. The Astros lead 4-0.

The 27-year-old Sanchez was an All-Star in 2016, but has struggled this season and entered Saturday's game having lost 13 straight decisions to lead the majors with 14 losses.

Sanchez plunked Omar Narváez with two outs in the first inning and retired the next nine batters before walking Daniel Vogelbach with two outs in the fourth. Ryan Court hit a soft grounder with two outs in the fifth but first baseman Yuli Gurriel fielded it and tossed it to Sanchez, who dashed to first base just in front of Court for the third out.

Sanchez walked Mallex Smith with one out in the sixth, then retired the next two batters to end the inning.
