Dodgers Nearly No-Hit, But Beat Padres 1-0

The Dodgers didn't have a hit through 8 2/3 innings, but a double by Juan Uribe followed by a single from Dioner Navarro gave them a 1-0 victory over the Padres. San Diego only had one hit themselves. It was the third straight shutout by the Dodgers, the first time they have accomplished that since July 25-27, 1991.

Rubby De La Rosa pitched six shutout innings for the Dodgers, allowing his lone hit in the fifth inning. He set a new career high with eight strikeouts, and has allowed just four runs in 20 innings over his last three starts. Blake Hawksworth pitched a scoreless ninth to pick up the victory.

Aaron Harang was just activated from the disabled list this morning, and responded by pitching six no-hit innings. Josh Spence, Chad Qualls, and Mike Adams combined for two more no-hit innings before Luke Gregerson got the loss in the ninth inning. The Padres have never had a no-hit win in their 43-year history.

Padres Have Combined No-Hitter Through Eight Innings Against Dodgers

Hits are at a premium in Los Angeles today, as through eight innings at Dodger Stadium the Dodgers and Padres have combined for just a single base hit. The Padres, who are in their 43rd year of existence and have never had a no-hitter, got six no-hit innings out of Aaron Harang in his first start off the disabled list. Josh Spence, Chad Qualls, and Mike Adams combined to pitch the seventh and eighth innings.

Harang threw 37 pitches in the first inning, and it looked his day might be a short one, but escaped after two walks with no damage. He needed just 58 pitches to complete his final five innings. Rubby De La Rosa wasn't too shabby himself. He didn't allow a hit until the fifth inning, and struck out eight in his six scoreless innings. The Dodgers have pitched 26 consecutive scoreless innings themselves.

The record for fewest combined hits in a game is one, set at Dodger Stadium on September 9, 1965, when Sandy Koufax threw a perfect game as the Dodgers beat the Cubs and Bob Hendley, who allowed only one hit himself.

Dodgers Seek Third Straight Shutout In Afternoon Affair With Padres

The Dodgers go for their third straight win, and their third straight shutout on Saturday afternoon as they battle the Padres in the second game of a three-game series, on Fox. Rubby De La Rosa starts for the Dodgers, looking for his third straight outing of seven innings. Aaron Harang starts for San Diego.

The Dodgers won Friday night in a game that didn't see them put a run in scoring position until the eighth inning. A Rafael Furcal RBI single gave the Dodgers a 1-0 lead, a margin that held even though the Padres loaded the bases with nobody out in the top of the ninth inning. San Diego was 0-for-11 with runners in scoring position.

De La Rosa has lost each of his last four starts, but he has pitched very well in his last two. He has lasted seven innings for two straight starts, allowing four total runs. On the season he is 3-4 with a 4.31 ERA, including 2-4 with a 4.67 ERA as a starter.

Harang is 7-2 with a 3.71 ERA for the Padres this season. He beat the Dodgers in San Diego on April 10, allowing two runs, one earned, in six innings. The Dodgers are 4-3 against San Diego this season, including 2-2 at Dodger Stadium.
