Dodgers no-hit by Mike Fiers, Astros

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The Dodgers continued their offensive malaise on Friday night, getting no-hit by Mike Fiers on Friday night in a 3-0 loss to the Astros at Minute Maid Park in Houston

The Dodgers got one hit in six innings against Tuesday starter Felix Doubront in Oakland, then got all of two hits in eight innings against Jesse Chavez on Wednesday. After three games, new third base coach Ron Roenicke has to feel like the Maytag repair man.

The Dodgers were last no-hit on June 8, 2012, when Kevin Milwood and five relievers combined to do the deed for the Mariners in Seattle.

Brett Anderson induced 10 ground ball outs and struck out five with no walks in his six innings, but allowed two home runs for just the third time in 24 starts this season. Jake Marisnick hit a two-run shot in the second inning, and Evan Gattis added a solo shot in the sixth.

Up next

The Dodgers will send Zack Greinke to the mound on Saturday evening, a 4:10 p.m. PT start, looking to snap a three-game losing streak, possibly by allowing negative runs. Scott Kazmir takes the ball for the Astros in the middle game of the series.
