Game 65, 2018

Braves at Dodgers, 1:10 PM PDT, TV: SPNLA, FSSO

The Braves’ LHP Sean Newcomb (7-1, 2.49 ERA) is having the kind of year the Dodgers’ Alex Wood did last season when he started off 10-0 and was selected for the All Star Game. Newcomb lost his first start of the year but has made eight quality starts since then, including five scoreless outings of six innings or more. The Dodgers counter with RHP Ross Stripling (4-1, 1.52 ERA), who’s won his last four starts and given up only four earned runs in his last seven starts going back to May 3.

Today 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.
