Dodgers Finish Combined No-hitter over Padres

Walker Buehler

The Dodgers collected a combined no-hitter in the opener on Friday and have won three straight.

Los Angeles had a combined no-hitter on Friday against San Diego on Friday, adding more pain for the home team this season. He earned a World Series title ring with the 2016 Cubs.

Their top-ranked prospect is Walker Buehler. He has yet to face San Diego this year, but he made four starts against the team in 2017, compiling a 3-0 record with a 1.08 ERA and 35 strikeouts.

The right-hander with the jumpy fastball that reaches 98 miles per hour made it through six innings without allowing a hit.

Saturday: Went 1 for 2 in a 7-4 win over the Dodgers in Mexico.

It was about the worst possible outcome on the worldwide stage - as if that mattered in the midst of a miserable season still in its relative infancy.

Well, that wasn't what any of us were looking for from the San Diego Padres. "I really don't care about the setting or the opponent". "I've never thought that I was going to be as successful so soon, and I'm very thankful with the Padres organization because they believed in me". It doesn't matter to me one bit who it is or where it is. Of those 298, just 12 have been executed by more than one pitcher. It's a tough break.

His solid contact is bound to eventually get a hit at one point in the game; especially with right-handed pitcher Bryan Mitchell on the mound. Franchy Cordero drew a leadoff walk and came around on singles by Lopez and pinch hitter Chase Headley. It's also the first game to take place outside of the U.S. Oakland Atheltics left Sean Manaea recently accomplished the feat against the Boston Red Sox.

"This is actually the fourth period I have to see a no-hitter, however, the first the one I'm on the excellent end of this" Hernandez said. Lauer has allowed 13 hits and 10 runs in just nine innings of work this season, while his allowed batting average is.361.

Instead, Buehler kept rolling.

Los Angeles manager Dave Roberts said it had been a rough week-plus. It was Buehler's longest outing as a professional - majors or minors.

He had eight strikeouts and three walks and threw 93 pitches on the night. I'm superstitious, so I can't say, but if they are, a combined no-no is how you make a triumphant return.

So the payoff is likely a ways off.
