Major League Baseball's return to Mexico brings big moments

In early May of 2018, the San Diego Padres and Los Angeles Dodgers met for a 3-game Series at Estadio de Beisbol in Monterrey, Mexico - MLB's first slate of regular season games in Mexico in almost 20 years. The series started off in memorable fashion with the Dodgers throwing a combined no-hitter, the first ever in international play. The Padres' bats came alive in the final two games, winning both contests and the series at large.
