That altitude and those shallow fences at least in theory worked worked against Buehler and company on Friday night, but nevertheless the Padres failed to register a hit.

The Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres open a three-game series in Mexico on Friday night with right-hander Walker Buehler starting for the Dodgers against left-hander Joey Lucchesi of the Padres. "That's probably the toughest one of those conversations I've ever had". The 6-foot-2, 175-pounder made his major league debut last season and finished with a 7.71 earned run average in eight relief appearances.

The Dodgers offense has slashed.244/.328/.398 on its way to 4.6 runs scored per game this year, including 4.8 runs per game against divisional foes and 3.6 per game over the team's last five outings (3-2 SU).

"I threw one in high school, but I gave up two runs in the first inning, so that one doesn't really count", Buehler said.

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.

Friday night's no-hitter is the second of 2018, coming nearly two weeks after Sean Manaea no-hit the Red Sox on April 22.
