Angels Announce New "No-Hit The Dodgers Night" Promotion For Sept 7 Game

Excited that the Dodgers choose every ninth game to roll over and play dead to a unassuming pitcher's no-hitter, the Angels have set up a "no-hit the Dodgers" promotional giveaway at the stadium, with miniature plaques to be given away to the first 20,000 fans in attendance. The plaques will be inscribed with the dates of the Astros' no-hitter, followed by the Cubs' no-hitter, and then a space will be left for the pending Angels no-hitter (which will be engraved at the stadium post-game, free of charge).
Angels owner Arte Moreno is lobbying to get the first game of the Dodgers / Angels series televised on ESPN, which would ensure the no-hit victory for the home Angels.
"Sure, we're only throwing Matt Shoemaker, he of the 4.48 ERA, said Angels manager Mike Scioscia. "But that's not much worse than Mike Fiers, and he did it Houston, so Shoe's got a good chance.
"Plus, we didn't have a promotion scheduled for that day (Jersey Mike's Sub Card day is the following game), and we figured: why not, it's not like [Dodgers hitting coach] Mark McGwire is going to help any."
Scioscia would not address the Dodgers' apparent "Ron Roenicke curse" when asked by a pool reporter.
