LOS ANGELES (AP) — Tyler Anderson of the Los Angeles Dodgers lost his bid for a no-hitter when Los Angeles Angels star Shoehi Ohtani tripled with one out in the ninth inning Wednesday night.

Ohtani pulled a line drive into the right-field corner well beyond a diving Mookie Betts. It came on the 123rd pitch from Anderson — his previous career high was 109 in 2018 with Colorado.

Anderson threw a called third strike past three-time MVP Mike Trout to start the ninth as the Dodger Stadium crowd roared. Ohtani, last year's AL MVP, lined the next pitch — an 86 mph cutter — into right.

Anderson shook his head slightly and was lifted for closer Craig Kimbrel with the Dodgers leading 4-0. The 32-year-old left-hander tipped his cap as he walked off the mound to a standing ovation.

He struck out eight and walked two. Anderson fanned Ohtani twice before the two-way star spoiled the no-hit bid.

The crowd of 50,812 was on its feet cheering for Anderson to get the last out of the eighth. He did, with Taylor Ward going down swinging.

The Angels had left four runners on base. Ward reached on an error by center fielder Cody Bellinger leading off the game. Trout followed with a walk before Anderson retired Ohtani on a called third strike and Matt Duffy went down swinging to end the inning.

Anderson hit Jared Walsh with a pitch leading off the second.

Walsh hit a dribbler up the first base line in the seventh. Anderson ran over to make the play and got there in time, but spiked the throw for an error.

Anderson has had one season with a winning record (4-3 in 2020 with San Francisco) but now he’s having the best year of his seven-year career. He came into the game with a 7-0 record and 3.07 ERA.

The Dodgers got a three-run homer from Will Smith in the first and a solo shot by Trea Turner in the third.
