Historic Victory of Dodgers in Monterrey, Mexico

Historic Victory of Dodgers in Monterrey, Mexico

Dodgers rookie Walker Buehler tossed the first six frames, followed by Tony Cingrani, Yimi Garcia, and Adam Liberatore recording a scoreless inning apiece to cap off the no-no, with Francy Cordero striking out swinging to end it. When Pujols hit his 600th home run at home against Minnesota last June 3, Miami's Edinson Volquez pitched a no-hitter at home against Arizona. The Padres, who have Mexican entrepreneur Alfredo Harp as stakeholder, played a three-game series in 1996 against the New York Mets and, in 1999, the Colorado Rockies played the first game on Opening Day outside of the United States and Canada. As for Estadio Monterrey, it seems an unlikely venue for a no-hitter.

Pujols gets 3,000th hit: The Angels' Albert Pujols got his 3,000th hit, reaching the mark with a broken-bat single in Seattle and becoming the 32nd player in major-league history to join the club.

To be part of a no-hitter is an wonderful accomplishment in itself.

This series was part of Major League Baseball's push to internationalize the sport. The 6-foot-5, 227-pounder made his major league debut in the Padres' second game this season, gaining his promotion from Triple-A when right-hander Dinelson Lamet went on the disabled list for eventual Tommy John surgery. He removed then-rookie Ross Stripling from a bid against San Francisco with one out in the eighth in 2016.

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.

This one worked out better for Roberts, giving baseball its second no-hitter of the season. 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 the win. It was good. I was happy with it. "Walker was electric and the relievers did a great job".
