Dodgers throw team no-hitter; Pujols joins 3000-hit club

"Being in my country and to represent the San Diego Padres and all of my country is great".

Tony Cingrani pitched the seventh, walking two, then Yimi Garcia raced through the eighth before Adam Libertadore got the last three outs - striking out Padres outfielder Franchy Cordero to cap a 4-0 victory and seal just the 12th combined no-hitter ever in Major League Baseball.

Los Angeles is 2-5 in Maeda's last 7 road starts and 3-7 in their last 10 games overall while the over is 10-3-1 in their last 14 division matchups.

Lauer (1-1) lost at Colorado in his major league debut on April 24 and did not get a decision when he started six days later at San Francisco.

Bryan Mitchell allowed four runs on five hits over 4 2/3 innings in a loss to the Mets on Sunday.


It's the 23rd no-hitter in Dodgers history, and it came against the only team that has never thrown a no-hitter (seriously, how have the Padres *never* thrown a no-hitter?).

In fact, the 2018 Padres, who struck out 13 times Friday night, are historically bad at merely making contact with the baseball.

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

Albert Pujols has 2,999 hits as Los Angeles opens a series at Seattle. With AP Photos.Walker Buehler and two relievers have combined for eight hitless innings for the Los Angeles Dodgers in a neutral-site game against the San Diego Padres. His pitch count had reached 93, and for a pitcher with a Tommy John surgery in his past, manager Dave Roberts made the prudent decision and pulled him from the game.

Pujols dumped the single into shallow right field in the fifth inning against Mike Leake. Chris Taylor and Enrique Hernandez each hit a solo homer while Matt Kemp and Alex Verdugo each contributed RBIs as well to round out the scoring for L.A.in the win.
