Rookie Walker Buehler spearheads first combined no-hitter in Dodgers' history

The Los Angeles Dodgers will look to stay hot after winning their third straight game by a final score of 4-0 in game one on Friday. There hasn't been much to like about Mitchell's 2018 season thus far, as he's now the owner of a 6.07 ERA and 1.89 WHIP - due in large part to the fact he's walked 23 in 29 2/3 innings.

Taking place at Estadio de Beisbol Monterrey in Monterrey, Mexico, this year's three-game Mexico series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres kicked off in style.

Cole dominates: Gerrit Cole struck out a career-high 16 and walked just one in a one-hitter as the Astros routed Arizona 8-0 in Phoenix. Pujols got three shots at 3,000 after reaching striking distance with a two-run double in the second inning, but he couldn't get the hit before the Angels began a five-game road trip.

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.

Joey Lucchesi (3-2) allowed three runs and five hits as the last-place Padres dropped to 11-22. He has made six starts and worked 32 1/3 innings. The last combined no-no in the majors before Friday night came September 1, 2014, when Cole Hamels, Ken Giles, Jake Diekman and Jonathan Papelbon all helped the Phillies no-hit the Braves.

Four Dodger pitchers combined to no-hit the Padres. Buehler gave up two runs to the Giants in San Francisco.

Two teams with strong ties to Mexico will be meeting for the first time in the country.

The Padres have been no-hit 10 times since the franchise's first season in 1969, most in Major League Baseball.

The Dodgers have the most no-hitters for any franchise in Major League Baseball with 23, while the Padres are still the only franchise to never throw a no-hitter.
