Four Los Angeles Dodgers pitchers combined to no-hit the San Diego Padres in Monterrey, Mexico, one year ago today.
The Dodgers’ Walker Buehler pitched six innings of no-hit ball at Estadio de Beisbol Monterrey, and Tony Cingrani, Yimi Garcia and Adam Liberatore each followed with one no-hit inning as the Dodgers topped the Padres 4-0. Buehler, who was pulled after throwing 93 pitches, struck out eight and walked three. Cingrani also walked a batter.
The no-hitter helped the 2010s set a new decade record for most no-hitters with 35, breaking the mark of 34 no-hitters in the 1960s. Another no-no was tossed four days later, bringing the decade total (so far) to 36.
The last Los Angeles Dodgers no-hitter was 2 years, 10 months, 16 days earlier by Clayton Kershaw, an 8-0 win at Dodger Stadium on Wednesday, June 18, 2014. The Padres were previously no-hit 3 years, 10 months, 9 days earlier by the San Francisco Giants’ Tim Lincecum at AT&T Park on Wednesday, June 25, 2014, for a 4-0 win. It was Lincecum’s second no-no against the Padres.
