Dodgers' Buehler fuels combined no-hitter against Padres

Dodgers' Buehler fuels combined no-hitter against Padres

San Diego is 1-5 in Mitchell's last 6 starts and 1-4 in their last 5 division matchups while the over is 5-0 in their last 5 games against a team with a losing record. Four Dodgers pitchers combined to no-hit the Padres in Friday's opener, the first no-hitter outside the USA and Canada.

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.

In his third big league start, Eric Lauer fired six shutout innings against Los Angeles on Sunday afternoon in Monterrey. Chris Taylor and Puerto Ricos Enrique Hernandez hit back-to-back homers in the second inning under a torrential downpour as the Dodgers increased their lead over San Diego to three runs.

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?).

Valenzuela pitched a no-hitter against St. Louis at Dodger Stadium on June 29, 1990, the same night Oakland's Dave Stewart pitched a no-hitter at Toronto - one of five in Canada, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

As for the Dodgers, they now have 23 no-hitters as a franchise, good for the most all-time in Major League Baseball history.

That ended a festive night that began with a ceremonial first pitch thrown by Dodgers great Fernando Valenzuela, who became a star in the US and Mexico and set off "Fernandomania" when he became a fan favorite in the 1980s.

It took four pitchers, but the Los Angeles Dodgers made history Friday night in Monterrey, Mexico.

While the Dodgers were offering zero hits to the Padres, an Angels future Hall-of-Famer was becoming the fourth player in Major League Baseball to hit 600 home runs and 3,000 hits in a career. Alex Verdugo singled in a run in the sixth against Adam Cimber.

"I'm very happy with all the achievements that I'm getting", he said Friday. "Walker was electric and the relievers did a great job".
