Rich Hill allowed one run on one hit in five innings to earn a 3-2 victory over the Nationals on Saturday.

The only hit he allowed was a solo home run by Anthony Rendon. He struck out five and issued two walks in the victory. The Dodgers have nursed his innings since his near-perfect game in late August to ensure he reaches the post-season in good health. He struggled badly early in the season but has turned things around in the second half. The 37-year-old left-hander improves to 10-8 with a 3.60 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in 23 starts.
Sep 16 - 4:39 PM

Rich Hill yielded two runs over five innings Sunday in a loss to the Rockies.

Los Angeles has now lost 10 straight games and 15 of its last 16. Hill allowed Colorado to set the tone early in this one, giving up either a single or a walk to the first four batters he faced. The veteran left-hander settled in from there, but the Dodgers' offense didn't make any noise until Alex Verdugo's pinch-hit solo shot in the bottom of the ninth. Hill is now 9-8 with a 3.67 ERA in 22 starts this season. He'll face the Nationals on the road next.
Sep 10 - 7:31 PM

Rich Hill yielded just two earned runs over six innings but took a loss Monday versus the Diamondbacks.

Hill pitched well, striking out nine batters while issuing only one walk and holding Arizona to two hits, but he was still thoroughly out-dueled by Diamondbacks ace Robbie Ray in the Dodgers' eventual 13-0 loss. Hill is now 9-7 on the year with a 3.67 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, and 135/42 K/BB ratio in 112 2/3 innings. He'll hope for more run support next time out against the Rockies.
Sep 4 - 11:44 PM

Rich Hill was hit hard in Tuesday's loss to the Diamondbacks, allowing six runs on eight hits over 3 2/3 frames.

Hill struck out four and walked one on the evening. Most of the damage against him was done during a five-run first inning that was keyed by a two-run homer from A.J. Pollock and a two-run single from Brandon Drury. Hill will look to rebound when he does battle against the Padres on Sunday in San Diego.
Aug 30 - 12:57 AM

Rich Hill took a perfect game into the ninth inning and a no-hitter into the 10th before losing the game to the Pirates on a solo home run by Josh Harrison on Wednesday.

He lost the perfecto on a Logan Forsythe fielding error on a grounder hit by Jordy Mercer leading off the ninth inning. The scoreless game went into extra innings and Hill came back out to pitch the bottom of the tenth. Josh Harrison led off the frame with a walk-off solo homer to spoil the no-hitter and saddle Hill with a loss. The 37-year-old left-hander punched out 10 batters on 99 pitches in the marvelous ballgame. He falls to 9-5 with a 3.32 ERA in 19 starts.
Aug 23 - 10:14 PM

Rich Hill earned his ninth victory of the season on Friday, limiting the Tigers to three runs on six hits across five frames.

The veteran southpaw walked three and struck out five on the night. The Tigers jumped on him for a pair of runs in the first inning, but Hill settled in nicely afterwards and the Dodgers' offense provided plenty of support. He'll carry a 3.54 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 112/40 K/BB ratio into Wednesday's matchup against the Pirates in Pittsburgh.
Aug 18 - 10:33 PM

Rich Hill was taken to the hospital for precautionary tests after taking a pitch off his neck Friday against the Padres.

Hill stayed in the game after being struck by a Clayton Richard fastball in the fourth inning but went to a hospital for further tests after the game. X-rays were negative and doctors weren't able to find anything wrong with Hill, who said his breathing was never affected. The veteran lefty should be fine to make his next start Friday against Detroit.
Aug 12 - 8:53 PM

Rich Hill yielded two earned runs, five hits and three walks with nine strikeouts over six innings in a no-decision on Friday against the Padres.

Hill tossed 65 of his 101 pitches for strikes in the quality start. He didn't win, but he hasn't suffered a loss over his past seven outings since his last setback on June 26. He'll look to get back into the win column in Detroit next Friday.
Aug 12 - 4:01 AM

Rich Hill registered eight strikeouts while allowing three runs in five innings against the Mets on Saturday.

He nearly got knocked out of the game in the first inning after allowing solo home runs to Michael Conforto, Wilmer Flores and Curtis Granderson; but was able to right the ship and get through five frames without allowing any more runs. The game was tied when he left, so his record holds at 8-4 with a 3.47 ERA after 16 starts. He has 98 strikeouts in 83 innings for the season.
Aug 5 - 7:56 PM

Rich Hill strolled through 5 2/3 innings giving up just one run on two hits to earn a 2-1 win over the Giants on Saturday.

He made it look easy against a weak Giants' batting order. Hill struck out three batters and issued two free passes while improving his record to 8-4. He didn't look very good through the first three months of the season but today's effort completes a fantastic month of July. He seems poised for continued success down the stretch. The 37-year-old has a 3.35 ERA and 1.18 WHIP to go with 90 strikeouts and 33 walks in 78 innings.
Jul 29 - 7:22 PM

Rich Hill yielded just two earned runs, six hits and two walks with eight strikeouts across 6 1/3 innings in a victory against the Braves on Saturday.

Hill said after the game that he is dealing with a respiratory ailment. It's uncertain if the illness will force him to miss his next scheduled start, but he'll have a week to rest before he is expected to take the hill against the rival Giants next Saturday.
Jul 23 - 5:16 AM

Rich Hill threw five innings of one-run ball Sunday in the Dodgers' 3-2 defeat of the Marlins.

Hill struck out nine batters and issued zero walks in another excellent outing. The one run he gave up came on an RBI single by Ichiro Suzuki in the bottom of the fifth. Hill boasts a 1.74 ERA and 44/6 K/BB ratio over his last five starts covering 31 innings. He'll try to keep it rolling next time out against the Braves.
Jul 16 - 4:47 PM

Rich Hill punched out nine while surrendering one run on just two hits over seven innings and taking a no-decision in Thursday's win over the Diamondbacks.

This was a fun little late-night pitching duel between Hill and Robbie Ray (who tied his career-high with 13 strikeouts). For his part, Hill surrendered only a solo home run to Jake Lamb in the fifth inning. Outside of that, he completely flummoxed the Diamondbacks. Not only did he strike out nine batters, he did not walk a soul. The veteran southpaw has been nothing short of brilliant in his last two starts, surrendering just one run on six hits while fanning 20 and walking one in a space of 14 frames. Hill heads into the All-Star break sporting a 3.69 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 70/29 K/BB ratio in 12 starts.
Jul 7 - 1:22 AM

Rich Hill allowed just four hits and a walk while striking out a season-high 11 batters over seven scoreless innings in a win Saturday at San Diego.

It was Hill's first victory on the road since May 29, a span of four outings away from home. The strikeouts matched a career best, set two times before when he was a member of the Chicago Cubs. He struck out 11 on June 7, 2007, as well as Sept. 6, 2006. The veteran southpaw also had his first career multi-hit game, as well as his first base hit since June 19, 2009, as a member of the Baltimore Orioles.
