MONTERREY, Mexico — In the third start of his career, Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Walker Buehler spun six no-hit innings before Manager Dave Roberts removed him from the game in a 4-0 victory over the San Diego Padres on Friday night.

Buehler was the lead horse as the team’s pitching staff pulled together for a unique milestone: The first combined no-hitter in franchise history and just the 12th in baseball history.

After Buehler left the mound, Tony Cingrani handled the seventh. He walked a pair but did not permit a hit. Yimi Garcia blitzed through the eighth.

When Adam Liberatore struck out Padres outfielder Franchy Cordero to end the ninth, catcher Yasmani Grandal threw his fists toward the sky. Buehler ran off the bench and jumped into his catcher’s arms.

By now, in his third season as manager, Roberts has grown accustomed to these situations. He took the baseball from Ross Stripling in his debut outing after 71/3 innings in 2016. Later that summer, Roberts made the more difficult choice to end Rich Hill’s bid for a perfect game in Miami. In both cases, Roberts opted to avoid exposing his players to the threat of injury.

The decision on Friday followed the same pattern. Buehler had thrown 93 pitches, one shy of his professional high. He underwent Tommy John surgery in 2015. The 23-year-old is operating under a tightly monitored innings restriction this season and is the most promising arm in the Dodgers farm system.

WHITE SOX: Infielder Yoan Moncada was placed on the 10-day disabled list with tightness in his left hamstring. Manager Rick Renteria said an MRI came back clean and the move was precautionary.

Moncada, 22, made an early exit in Friday’s loss to the Twins. He also was taken out of Wednesday’s game against St. Louis. Moncada is batting .263 with six home runs and 17 RBI.

ANGELS: Shohei Ohtani is set to make his return to the mound after being announced as the starter for Sunday’s game at Seattle.

Ohtani had been scheduled to start earlier this week before a mild ankle sprain pushed back his turn in the rotation.

INDIANS-BREWERS TRADE: Cleveland acquired reliever Oliver Drake from Milwaukee for $110,000. Drake, a 31-year-old right-hander is 1-0 with a 6.39 ERA in 11 games this year.

He has 15 strikeouts in 122/3 innings.
