Padres lose no-hitter, game after 8.2 innings

Luke GregersonOh, so close for the Padres ... sort of.

San Diego entered Saturday as one of two major-league teams without a no-hitter in franchise history (Other club mentioned below).

And it's going to stay that way, thanks to the Dodgers' Juan Uribe doubling in the bottom of the ninth with two outs ... on a two-strike pitch.  

Who was the San Diego pitcher?

It was a combined effort. Reliever Luke Gregerson (pictured), who yielded Uribe's double, entered in the ninth. Aaron Harang started, pitching six innings (six K's, three walks), Josh Spence fanned the only batter he faced in the seventh, Chad Qualls closed the seventh and Mike Adams tossed the eighth.

However, had Gregerson retired Uribe, it would not have been an official no-hitter since the game was scoreless.

But that ended an at-bat later when Dioner Navarro plated Uribe with a walk-off single for a Dodgers 1-0 victory. 

But get this: The Dodgers held the Padres offense to just one hit, a Cameron Maybin fifth-inning single.

Rubby De La Rosa started for L.A., fanning eight with four walks and Maybin's hit over six frames. Matt Guerrier worked the seventh, Mike MacDougal the eighth and winning pitcher Blake Hawksworth the ninth.

As for the other major-league ballclub without a no-no, it's the New York Mets.

Padres lose no-hitter, game after 8.2 innings

Pleasing honed message. Hardly envisioned that barefoot running used to be the idea convenient. Extolment in your case!

No No No No

These squads are like the tean I follow, the Oakland "Pathetics".

They collectively are unable to hit their weight.

Thank goodness the parks are attractive and the weather is great at present.

Go A's.

Wouldn't that be 8.66 innings or 8 and 2/3 innings?
