The Dodgers were pathetic and sad for most of this game, getting no-hit by the awful San Diego Padres through 26 outs. Lucky for them, Rubby De La Rosa, Matt Guerrier, Mike MacDougal, and Blake Hawksworth combined to hold the Padres to only one hit, wriggling out of threats along the way. Unlucky for Fox national broadcasters Joe Buck and Tim "Real Man" McCarver, they had to call a thoroughly awful game with an absent crowd, oppressive heat, and lacking offense (on both teams' behalf).
Enter .208 batter Juan Uribe as the 27th out and the only thing keeping the Padres from the 10th inning. But Padre pitcher Luke Gregerson serves up a double to left to Uribe. Hmm. So enter .171 batter Dioner Navarro as the 27th out and the only thing keeping the Padres from the 10th inning. But Dioner hits a walkoff single to the gap in right-center and THAT'S ALL SHE WROTE!
Dodgers win, keeping their lowly two hits until the very last at bats. Padres miss out on the opportunity to leave the Mets as the only team to have not thrown a no-hitter. Three in a row, baby!
