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.
