LOS ANGELES - In celebration of Clayton Kershaw's first-career no-hitter last night, the 22nd no-hitter in Dodger franchise history, the Dodgers will offer a limited number of $22 tickets to Kershaw's next scheduled home start, Sunday, June 29 (vs. STL, 1:10 p.m.). A limited number of $22 Infield Reserve (reg. $30), preferred reserve (reg. $25) and left field pavilion (reg. $25) tickets for the June 29 game are available for purchase now, while supplies last, by visiting www.dodgers.com/nohitter or by calling 866-DODGERS.
Kershaw took a perfect-game into the seventh inning and allowed just one base runner in an 8-0 win over the Rockies last night, the 22nd no-hitter in Dodger franchise history and the 12th in Los Angeles history. Kershaw finished the game with 15 strikeouts, a career-high, which tied for the most in the Majors this season and the most by a Dodger since Hideo Nomo's 17 on April 13, 1996 vs. the Marlins. It was the first no-hitter thrown at Dodger Stadium since the Angels' combined 8.0-inning no-hit loss on June 28, 2008 and first by an individual since the Dodgers' Ramon Martinez on July 14, 1995 vs. Florida. Kershaw's 15 Ks were the most ever for a Dodger in a no-hitter and the most for any pitcher in a no-hitter since the Rangers' Nolan Ryan's 16 on May 1, 1991 against the Blue Jays. Kershaw's no-hitter was the second of the season by a Dodger, marking just the second time in franchise history that the team has had two pitchers throw no-hitters in the same season, also accomplished by the 1956 Brooklyn club with no-hitters by Carl Erskine vs. NY Giants (May 12, 1956) and Sal Maglie vs. Philadelphia (Sept. 25, 1956).
