PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Josh Beckett pitched the first no-hitter of his decorated career and the first in the majors this season, leading the Los Angeles Dodgers over the Philadelphia Phillies 6-0 on Sunday.

Beckett struck out six, walked three and didn’t come close to allowing a hit against a lineup that included two former NL MVPs and four former All-Stars.

The 34-year-old right-hander, who needed surgery last year after a nerve condition left him unable to feel his fingertips, threw 128 pitches. He fanned Chase Utley on a called strike three to end the game.

Beckett (3-1) pitched the Dodgers’ first no-hitter since Hideo Nomo beat Colorado at Coors Field in 1996, and the 21st in franchise history. Sandy Koufax threw four.

It was first no-hitter in the majors since Miami’s Henderson Alvarez did it against Detroit on the final day of the 2013 season.

Beckett became the first visiting pitcher to throw a no-hitter in Philadelphia since Montreal’s Bill Stoneman in 1969 at Connie Mack Stadium.

A three-time All-Star, Beckett was the MVP of the 2003 World Series.

A.J. Burnett (3-4) lost in a matchup against his former Marlins teammate.

BRAVES 7, ROCKIES 0

ATLANTA (AP) - Evan Gattis homered twice to support Julio Teheran’s six scoreless innings and the Atlanta Braves beat Colorado.

Justin Upton and Chris Johnson added two-run homers for the NL East-leading Braves, who have won six of eight.

Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki left in the eighth and appeared to slightly limp as he walked off the field. He said he hit his left foot on a backswing, but said he thought he was OK.

Teheran (4-3) lowered his ERA to 1.77. He gave up four hits and struck out six.

Franklin Morales (3-4) was chased in the fifth.
