Coming into tonight, Johnny Cueto had posted a 1.63 ERA (5 ER / 27.2 IP) and a .190 opponents average in his last four starts at Dodger Stadium. He has given up 1 ER over 5 IP (Justin Turner's 24th home run of the season).

Justin Turner breaks up Johnny Cueto's no-hitter in the 4th inning with his 24th HR of the season. Cueto has allowed 9 HR in 62.2 innings-pitched since July 1. He allowed 7 in 113.2 IP in the first 3 months of the season.

Miguel Cabrera and Albert Pujols both had four-hit games tonight. They're second and third in the majors in four-hit games since Pujols debuted in 2001. The leader? No surprise, it's Ichiro with 53. Cabrera has 44 and Pujols 42. Pujols' 584th home run also means he broke a tie with Mark McGwire for 10th on the all-time list.

USC coach Clay Helton reported some good news on second-team All-Pac-12 tackle Chad Wheeler, who has not practiced in two weeks due to plantar fasciitis. Wheeler did not report any pain after running on a modified treadmill, but it's still unclear if he'll be ready to play against Alabama. China Edoga would likely start at left tackle if Wheeler is unable to go.

Todd Gurley, the man who is not to be touched, was near the bottom of the pile. Fisher: "That was his choice, OK? We all need to be smarter than that, but that was his choice. Shows you what kind of competitor he is."

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Alec Ogletree, Benny Cunningham, Todd Gurley and others got in a fight today, which forced Jeff Fisher to halt practice. Fisher said he's "not concerned about it carrying over into the game." "It was just competing, man," Ogletree said. "Tempers flare, you know."

Is Clayton Kershaw a Hall of Famer?

Kershaw has won three Cy Youngs, an MVP and achieved numerous other pitching feats -- and he's only 28 years old. It seems like Kershaw would be a shoo-in for the HOF, but could the different way starters are used today affect his case? Schoenfield: Future standards for HOF pitchers

This week, two Pac-12 quarterbacks from the Class of 2013 have been named starters - Max Browne at USC and Ryan Burns at Stanford. That year, neither program offered Jared Goff, who the Los Angeles Rams selected No. 1 overall in the NFL draft. Goff was in contact with Stanford during the recruiting process, but the Cardinal stopped recruiting him once Burns committed.
