ST. PETERSBURG — D-backs right-hander Edwin Jackson walked seven batters in the first three innings on Friday, but settled down in the later innings, tossing 149 pitches in a no-hitter against his former club, the Rays.

The right-hander held Tampa Bay hitless despite walking seven batters through the first three innings. He walked Ben Zobrist, Evan Longoria and Carlos Pena to load the bases with no outs in the third. But he forced Matt Joyce to fly out to right, got some help from third baseman Mark Reynolds on a nice grab and throw home on a B.J. Upton grounder and got out of the inning on Hank Blalock’s groundout to second base.

After eight innings, Jackson had five strikeouts and seven walks on 134 pitches.
