The Los Angeles Dodgers played the finale of their nine-game road trip Sunday without Hanley Ramirez, who is suffering from calf soreness that may be a more serious injury than initially believed, and without Matt Kemp, who was once again out of the lineup.
Dee Gordon, Adrian Gonzalez and Yasiel Puig provided plenty of offensive punch without Kemp and Ramirez in the lineup, and Josh Beckett took care of things from the mound. In a 128-pitch performance, Beckett no-hit the Philadelphia Phillies.
The no-hitter was the first of Beckett’s career and he missed throwing a perfect game by three walks. With Sunday’s win, the Dodgers finished 5-4 on the road trip and return to Dodger Stadium for a three-game set with the Cincinnati Reds beginning Monday.
