The Padres were the only active MLB team without a no-hitter, and it came in their 8,206th regular season game. Musgrove faced only 28 Texas Rangers batters, one over the minimum, in the 3-0 victory.

The only Rangers baserunner was Joey Gallo after he got hit by a pitch in the fourth inning.

Musgrove struck out 10 threw 77 of his 112 pitches for strikes.
