CLEVELAND (AP) — Kansas City Royals rookie Brady Singer has not allowed the Cleveland Indians a hit through seven innings on Thursday night.

Singer, who gave up 10 singles in his previous outing against the Chicago White Sox on Sept. 4, has had little trouble with a Cleveland lineup that has struggled all season.

The right-hander walked Mike Freeman with one out in the second, but has otherwise had the Indians over-swinging or guessing. The closest Cleveland has come to a hit was when Tyler Naquin flied out to the warning track in right in the fifth and César Hernández lined out for the final out in the sixth.

Singer has struck out seven and walked two.

The Royals haven't had a no-hitter pitched for them since Bret Saberhagen in 1991 and have only four in team history.

There have only been 22 no-hitters by rookies since 1901, the last by San Francisco's Chris Heston in 2015.
