San Diego Padres vs. Los Angeles Dodgers

Walker Buehler

Walker Buehler

That's some pretty high praise from one of the most talented hitters in the game.

Major League Baseball returns to Mexico in the regular season for the first time in almost two decades when the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego play a three-game series in Monterrey.

It's the 23rd no-hitter in franchise history, though the Dodgers' first of the combined variety. "It's one of those things, to pitch in a place like this, an atmosphere like this, it was awesome".

Dodgers starter Walker Buehler got through six innings without allowing a hit against the Padres, reliever Tony Cingrani got through the seventh inning without allowing a hit and Yimi Garcia got through the eighth inning without giving up a hit. Hosmer then hit a drive over the wall in right against Kenta Maeda.

Albert Pujols of the Angels celebrates after hitting a single in Seattle for the 3,000th hit of his career.

"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. Each of the past four Dodgers no-hitters ended on a strikeout with Adam Liberatore getting Franchy Cordero for the last out of Friday's game.

Red Sox 5, Rangers 1: Mookie Betts hit his major-league-best 13th homer and Rick Porcello struck out eight in six innings while matching the AL lead with his fifth victory to help visiting Boston beat Texas.




Dodgers Manager Dave Roberts isn't even afraid to pull on a youthful pitcher during a no-hitter.

Rockies 8, Mets 7: Charlie Blackmon homered as visiting Colorado raced to a big early lead and then held off NY for its third straight win.

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

The Padres certainly did not put on the show they had hoped in the opener of a three-game series in front of a sold out Estadio de Beisbol Monterrey. Harper has four homers in four games as the leadoff batter. Buehler gave up two runs to the Giants in San Francisco.

After Hosmer provided an early lead for San Diego, Los Angeles responded with three straight runs.

For reference, tickets for Friday's game are selling on StubHub for over $94 for nosebleeds and up to nearly $1,900 for field level.
