Saturday’s NL Roundup
LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Ismael Valdes pitched his first career one-hitter and Raul Mondesi had a two-run single in the sixth inning as the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 2-0 on Saturday night.
Valdes lost his bid for the 14th perfect game in modern history when Kevin Young singled up the middle on the first pitch of the eighth inning.
Valdes (6-7), who pitched his first career shutout three starts earlier, struck out six and allowed only two balls out of the infield. He is 2-0 in his last four starts, giving up only four earned runs in 30 1-3 innings.
Francisco Cordova (6-6) took the loss.
