Dodgers manager Dave Roberts isn't afraid to pull a young pitcher during a no-hitter.
The San Diego Padres still don't have a no-hitter throughout their franchise history. It was 12th combined no-hitter in major league history and the first outside the USA or Canada.
Buehler struck out eight and walked three in six innings, giving way to Tony Cingrani, Yimi Garcia and Adam Liberatore, who threw an inning each.
The 23-year-old Buehler was the Dodgers' first-round pick (24th overall) in the 2015 draft out of Vanderbilt University. The Dodgers are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in San Diego, 41-19 in the last 60 meetings and 4-1 in Hills last 5 starts vs. Padres. Pujols got three shots at 3,000 after reaching striking distance with a two-run double in the second inning, but he couldn't get the hit before the Angels began a five-game road trip.
Designated as a reliever, Lauer will make his third appearance and start of his career on Sunday. He has allowed two runs on 10 hits and four walks with 11 strikeouts. Its starters have an ERA of 5.48, a WHIP of 1.66 and a strikeouts-per-nine of 8.5. Small sample size or not, this is the kind of success Verdugo is capable of.
Rays 6, Blue Jays 2: Relief pitcher Ryan Yarbrough made his case for a spot in Tampa Bay's injury-depleted rotation by throwing five scoreless innings for host Tampa Bay. Buehler went 1 for 3 at the plate, so, yes, he out-hit the entire Padres' lineup on the night.
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. The Padres have allowed 17 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 12 games.
This series had been section of Major League Baseball'therefore push to internationalize the sport.
San Diego (12-22) ended a two-game losing streak. The San Diego Padres rebounded nicely from Los Angeles' combined no-hitter, using two-run homers by Eric Hosmer and Raffy Lopez to beat the Dodgers 7-4 in the first major league series in Mexico since 1999.
Looks like the Padres left their bats in the United States.
