Chris Capuano was been the story on Sunday as the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Miami Marlins 5-0 at Marlins Park in Miami. Capuano took a no-hitter into the seventh inning, and settled for eight shutout frames to snap a personal three-game losing streak.
Jose Reyes singled with one out in the seventh inning to break up Capuano's no-hit bid, in what at the time was a 1-0 game. Capuano settled for allowing two hits and three walks in eight innings. He struck out 10 and didn't allow a batter to reach second base.
The Dodgers exploded for four runs in the eighth inning to pull away. Hanley Ramirez, who had a sacrifice fly earlier, drove in two more runs with a single, and had six hits in three games in his return weekend to Miami.
The last no-hitter for the Dodgers was by Hideo Nomo on September 17, 1996, against the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field. The Dodgers have had 20 no-hitters in their history, including 10 since moving to Los Angeles in 1958.
