Joey Lucchesi (3-2) allowed three runs and five hits as the last-place Padres dropped to 11-22. Dodgers rookie right-hander Walker Buehler had a stellar performance, pitching six hitless innings and striking out eight in what was his second win. It's the 23rd no-hitter in Dodgers franchise history, which is the highest team total by a significant margin.

The last time the Dodgers had a no-hitter was June 18, 2014 when Clayton Kershaw tossed one against the Rockies.

There had never been a no-hitter thrown on the same day a player got 3,000 hits before the Dodgers no-hitter came soon after Albert Pujols joined the 3,000-hit club.

The victor of the first game in that series for the Padres was Fernando Valenzuela, a Mexican native who originally became a superstar with the Dodgers. Each of the past four Dodgers no-hitters ended on a strikeout with Adam Liberatore getting Franchy Cordero for the last out of Friday's game. His pitch count had reached 93, and for a pitcher with a Tommy John surgery in his past, manager Dave Roberts made the prudent decision and pulled him from the game.

Bodies recovered after armed bandits attack Kaduna village
Gwaska residents say Saturday's attackers used to be cattle thieves but had turned to banditry in the region's remote villages. The attack came barely a week after the killing of 14 miners at a mining site at Janruwa area of the same state.

"For us, this weekend is an opportunity to go to another place and share Major League Baseball with the world".

Pujols dumped the single into shallow right field in the fifth inning against Mike Leake.

Stats: Szczur is hitting.243 (9 for 37) with one home run, seven runs scored, three RBIs and one stolen base in 25 games.

"I'm very happy with all the achievements that I'm getting", he said Friday. It*s not an easy feat.
