Chase Utley struck out looking for the final out of the game, as Beckett throws the 21st no-hitter in Dodgers' franchise history.

Beckett retired 23-straight at one point before walking Jimmy Rollins in the ninth inning. He finished the game with three walks and six strikeouts to lead the Dodgers to a 6-0 victory.

It was the first no-hitter thrown in the major leagues this season, and the first no-hitter for the Dodgers since 1996, when Hideo Nomo did it.

The 34-year-old Beckett, who has been dealing with various injuries the past couple seasons, now has a 3-1 record to go along with a 2.43 ERA, 1.02 WHIP, and 52 strikeouts in 55 2/3 innings pitched.
