The Los Angeles Dodgers pitched a combined no-hitter on Friday night in Monterrey, making franchise history in a 4-0 win over the Padres.
The Dodgers victory was their first ever combined no-hitter in franchise history, and just the 12th overall in MLB history. Walker Buehler went six innings, before Tony Cingrani, Yimi Garcia and Adam Liberatore pitched one inning each to close things out.
"It was awesome -- it's one of those things, to pitch in a place like this, an atmosphere like this, it was awesome," Buehler said after the game. "My curveball was off, but that's why I have a slider, too. It was good. I was happy with it.
"Hard-hit balls are outs, and our defense played unbelievable, obviously. It was a cool night."
Manager Dave Roberts also indicated to Dodgers Insider David Vassegh that the decision to remove Buehler after six innings was a 'no-brainer' and 'easier' than previous decision regarding Rich Hill and Ross Stripling.
