Rookie Walker Buehler spearheads first combined no-hitter in Dodgers' history

  • Matt Szczur gets no hits vs. Dodgers, but no other Padres do either

Los Angeles beat San Diego 4-0.

Stud pitching prospect Walker Buehler threw six no-hit innings (in just his third career start), and Tony Cingrani, Yimi Garcia, and Adam Liberatore followed with hitless innings out of the bullpen to lock down the no-hitter.

Joey Lucchesi (3-2) allowed three runs and five hits as the last-place Padres dropped to 11-22.

Buehler pitched six innings in his third major league start. It comes against the hapless Padres who have zero no-hitters in franchise history.

Los Angeles now has 23 no-hitters, the most in baseball.

How much is the prize money purse at the 2018 Kentucky Oaks?
Justify , trained by Bob Baffert, is the victor of the Santa Anita Derby and has won his three starts by a combined 19 lengths. I looked over at him and got this massive smile on my face just as one particular picture was taken. "I don't worry about it".

Mexico had waited since 1999 to host a regular-season big league game, and it got a historic one: the first no-hitter ever outside the USA or Canada and the 12th combined no-hitter in major league history.

The victor of the first game in that series for the Padres was Fernando Valenzuela, a Mexican native who originally became a superstar with the Dodgers.

Los Angeles Angles slugger Albert Pujols swatted his 3,000th hit as well. The 6-foot-5, 227-pounder made his major league debut in the Padres' second game this season, gaining his promotion from Triple-A when right-hander Dinelson Lamet went on the disabled list for eventual Tommy John surgery. There was only one no-hitter last season as well as in 2016, making this the first with multiple no-hitters since 2015, when there were seven.

Pirates 6, Brewers 4: Starling Marte hit a two-run, inside-the-park homer and rookie Nick Kingham won his second straight big league start for visiting Pittsburgh. Mexicos Alex Verdugo singled in a run in the sixth for the Dodgers to allow the veteran Chase Utley to score.

"This is the fourth time that I get to see a no-hitter, but the first one that I'm on the good end of it", Hernandez said. "It*s a night that no one is going to forget".
