"It was awesome - it's one of those things, to pitch in a place like this, an atmosphere like this, it was awesome", said Buehler, who raced out of the dugout to celebrate after the final out.

While this was the Dodgers' first combined no-hitter, the Padres had been combined no-hit once before - by the Braves on September 11, 1991.

"For us, this weekend is an opportunity to go to another place and share Major League Baseball with the world". He removed then-rookie Ross Stripling from a bid against San Francisco with one out in the eighth in 2016. Last season, Edinson Vólquez threw a no-hitter for the Marlins on June 3, 2017 - the same day Pujols hit his 600th career home run. Sean Manaea of the Oakland Athletics threw a no-hitter against the Boston Red Sox on April 21.


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.

Matt Kemp had an RBI single on a popup that fell between shortstop Freddy Galvis and right fielder Matt Szczur in short right field in the first inning, and Chris Taylor and Enrique Hernandez hit consecutive homers in the second. It*s not an easy feat.
