Game 63, 2017

Reds at Dodgers, 4:10 PM PT, TV: SPNLA, FS-O, MLBN (out-of-market only)

The Reds ask RHP Asher Wojciechowski (1-0, 4.50 ERA) to make his fifth start of the year, tenth of his career and first ever against the Dodgers. In his previous four starts the Reds have gone 3-1. He’ll face Alex Wood (6-0, 1.69 ERA), fresh off the Dodgers’ 10-day disabled list. Wood has a 25 1/3 scoreless inning streak going and has struck out 39.5% of the right-handed hitters he’s faced over the past 30 days.

This day in Dodgers’ history:

  • 2012 Bobby Abreu, who was tied with Mickey Mantle for 109th place on the all-time hit list, surpasses the Yankee legend with a second-inning double in L.A.’s 8-2 interleague victory over Seattle at Safeco Field. The 38 year-old outfielder has collected 2,416 hits playing for the Astros, Phillies, Yankees, Angels, and Dodgers.

In other news of former Dodgers, Maury Wills was presented the “Hall of Game” award by the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum today. The Hall of Game annually honors former Major League Baseball (MLB) stars who played the game with the same passion, determination, flair and skill exhibited by the heroes of the Negro Leagues.

    • I am probably alone here, but I have never cared for “Old Timers” games for the same reason I do not go to current concerts of bands and singers I grew up listening to in the sixties. They had their moment and now they are just embarrassing themselves.

        • I I do still buy any album James Taylor puts out, but not sure I would go a concert if he was in town. I was a big fan of Joan Baez. I remember watching a film in high school physics featuring her father who was a physicist.

  1. Wow – I had forgotten Bobby Abreu had played with the Dodgers. That’s crazy that it was only 5 years ago and I have basically no memory of that!

  2. Reds are a good candidate of having the 2 fastest players in MLB with Peraza and Hamilton.

    • A friend of mine had a similar refrigerator/Sears saga that kept me entertained for nearly three months.

  3. The Gnats are gnow 16 games out of first but, because the Pads blew an eighth-inning lead bigly, SF avoided sole occupancy of the basement.

  4. Hi all. Granddaughters here so I can only check in occasionally. Wood still pitching well, it looks like. And efficiently!

  5. Wood – if you are going to hit a batter do it on the first pitch of the at bat, not the 7th.

  6. I’m back. Dang, still tied. Poor Wood after all that good work. What a throw by Puig!

  7. Switched over to the Reds broadcast a few innings ago.
    Yes friends, I am that much of a crazy, carefree kinda guy.

  8. New plan: Scoreless outing by Jansen and then Dodgers score one to win it.

  9. By the way – I’ve switched back to the Dodger broadcast. Hoping that’s a good vibe.
