Kuroda Dominates Phillies In Dodgers’ Win

LOS ANGELES (AP) ― Hiroki Kuroda took a no-hitter into the eighth inning and Rod Barajas homered in his home debut for the Los Angeles Dodgers, who beat the Philadelphia Phillies 3-0 Monday night.

Kuroda walked Jayson Werth in the eighth before Raul Ibanez reached on a fielder’s choice groundout. Shane Victorino, hitless in seven career at-bats against Kuroda, hit a clean line-drive single to right field on Kuroda’s 97th pitch of the game to break up the no-hitter.

Kuroda received a standing ovation from the announced crowd of 44,896 when he left one batter later.

Before that, Kuroda hit Werth with a pitch in the second and walked Carlos Ruiz in the sixth.
