Clayton Kershaw of the Los Angeles Dodgers held the Colorado Rockies hitless for nine innings for his first career no-hitter.
Kershaw's no-hitter was not a perfect game because of a seventh-inning error by Hanley Ramirez. But it's arguably the most dominating performance during a no-hitter in baseball history.
Kershaw struck out 15 batters.
Only Nolan Ryan had more strikeouts in a no-hitter. In 1973, Ryan struck out 17 in a no-hitter but also walked four batters. In 1991, Ryan had a 16-strikeout no-hitter but walked two batters.
Kershaw did not walk a batter.
In the past 100 years, this was just the 31st time a pitcher pitched at least nine innings and did not allow a hit or a walk. Of those, 19 were perfect games.
