Dodgers’ Walker Buehler and bullpen combine for no-hitter against Padres


The Dodgers have probably the most no-hitters within the majors — and now probably the most in Mexico, too.

Walker Buehler and a trio of Los Angeles relievers mixed for the franchise’s 23rd no-hitter in a 4-Zero victory over the San Diego Padres within the opener of a neutral-site collection Friday night time.

Mexico had waited since 1999 to host a regular-season main league sport, and it obtained a historic one: the primary no-hitter ever outdoors the U.S. or Canada and the 12th mixed no-hitter in main league historical past.

Buehler pitched six innings in his third main league begin. The touted rookie right-hander struck out eight and walked three over 93 pitches earlier than handing off to left-hander Tony Cingrani, who walked two within the seventh however saved the no-no intact.

Yimi Garcia struck out two in an ideal eighth and Adam Liberatore threw a 1-2-Three ninth, hanging out Franchy Cordero to finish it.

Buehler’s highest pitch depend within the majors is 94 pitches, reached in his earlier outing against San Francisco.

Dodgers supervisor Dave Roberts is not afraid to tug a younger pitcher throughout a no-hitter. He eliminated then-rookie Ross Stripling from a bid against San Francisco with one out within the eighth inning in 2016. Reliever Chris Hatcher allowed a house run to the subsequent batter.

This one labored out higher for Roberts, giving baseball its second no-hitter of the season. Oakland left-hander Sean Manaea threw the primary against Boston on April 21.
