Dodgers: No hits, one win

LOS ANGELES (AP) ó The Dodgers became the fifth team in modern major league history to win a game in which they didn’t get a hit, defeating the Angels 1-0 on Saturday night.
The Angels’ Jered Weaver pitched six hitless innings before he was lifted for a pinch-hitter, then Jose Arredondo pitched the next two innings.
Since the Dodgers didn’t have to bat in the ninth, the game doesn’t qualify as a no-hitter. It was only the fifth such game since 1900, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
The Dodgers’ Chad Billingsley scattered three hits over seven innings, then Jonathan Broxton and Takashi Saito shut out the Angels for the next two innings.
Weaver was victimized by his own fielding error with one out in the fifth inning that allowed Matt Kemp to reach first.
Kemp’s spinning squibber rolled to the right of the mound and Weaver rushed toward first base to grab the ball, but bobbled it. The ruling on whether it was a hit or an error was a close one, since Weaver would have had to field the ball cleanly ó and first baseman Casey Kotchman was off the bag. But official scorer Don Hartack ruled it an error.
Kemp stole second and continued to third on catcher Jeff Mathis’ throwing error, then scored on Blake DeWitt’s sacrifice fly. The run was unearned.
Weaver (7-8) struck out six, walked three and hit a batter in his six innings. Chone Figgins pinch-hit for him in the seventh with two outs and a runner on second, but grounded out.
Billingsley (7-7) struck out seven and walked three.
