Dodgers Beat Angels Without a Hit

I played baseball in high school so I can really enjoy how bizarre this story is. (As can any fan of baseball.)

The Dodgers were not able to get a single hit in their game against the Angels. Usually that means you are going to lose and the opposing pitcher is going to be held as a hero throwing a seldom "no-hitter".

However, the Dodger's Matt Kemp got to first off of an error, stole second, and continued to third of of the catcher's throwing error. He then scored off of a sacrifice fly. The Dodgers went on to win 1-0.

This has happened only 5 times in major league history so it is a rare occurrence indeed.
