Game 77, 2019

Rockies at Dodgers, 7:10 PM PDT, TV: ATT SportsNet RM, SPNLA

RHP German Márquez (7-3, 4.57 ERA) goes for the Rockies and RHP Walker Buehler (7-1, 3.06 ERA) pitches for the Dodgers. Márquez is having a horrible June: he’s got a 10.06 ERA for the three starts he’s made thus far this month. Buehler has given up one run in the three starts he’s made in June.

A 10-day stay on the IL means two months away for Rich Hill.

Dodgers pitcher Rich Hill was placed on the 10-day injured list on Thursday with what doctors told him is a strained left flexor tendon and will be sidelined until at least August.

Hill, 39, said he won’t resume throwing for three to four weeks, then will probably need another month of build up toward competition. A free agent after this season, Hill said he expects to pitch again this year.

More personnel news: Beaty, sent down yesterday, was recalled today and starts tonight at first base. I suspect he didn’t leave LAX.

Today in Dodgers’ history:

  • 1957 In his first major league start, Von McDaniel‚ who graduated from Oklahoma’s Hollis High School last month, two-hits the Dodgers at Busch Stadium‚ 2-0. Brooklyn does not get a hit off the 18 year-old bonus baby until the sixth inning.
  • 1998 Bill Russell is released as Dodger manager and is replaced in the dugout by Glenn Hoffmann. In the front office, Tommy Lasorda assumes the general manager duties of the third-place club from Fred Claire.
  • 2016 Dean Kremer becomes the first-ever Israeli to sign a contract with a Major League baseball team when he comes to terms with the Dodgers, after being selected in the annual amateur draft earlier this month. The 20-year-old right-hander, who won Europe’s Most Valuable Pitcher award in both 2014 and 2015, has hurled for Israel’s national baseball team for the past three seasons. (Note: Kremer was traded to the Orioles in the Manny Machado deal in 2018)

  1. My wife and I just got home from dinner with friends; he’s a Giants fans. We agreed not to discuss baseball. And then Beatty! He was on his way back to OKC when Sborz was put on the LL. What a victory tonight with Buehler fanning 16 and getting the win. A classic. Marvelous!

  2. Dodgers gain on everybody except, probably, the Gnats. Lead Rox by 11, Pads by 13.5, Snakes by 14 if their score holds. Best record in baseball by two games over Twinkies. Biggest run differential by 21 over Twinkies.

  3. I would also accept a non solo home run or a any sort of run scoring hit here.

    • I remember the Martinez game – 18 K’s. It was memorable to me because the Dodgers rarely made the local sports news in Winnipeg back then.

  4. I can think of 16 reasons why it would be cool if the Dodgers win this game for Buehler here in the ninth.

  5. It only takes one Dodgers. I would be fine with a solo blast from any one of the next 3 hitters.

  6. I kinda hope the Dodgers don’t pinch hit for Buehler. I get they lose an AB but my fear is the bullpen won’t help the Dodger’s cause much either.

  7. Wonder if the Bellinger will move to 1st, Joc to left, and Beaty to right?

  8. You couldn’t have given up maybe 2 doubles or something Buehler? Both hits had to be HRs? So very 2019.

  9. In Phoenix, Gnats took a 6-0 after 2-1/2, and have now given it all back after four.

  10. Turner getting the rest of the night of was probably not in the plans for tonight’s game.

      • I know. It seems to me that this is the third or fourth time this year that a Dodger pitcher has lost the chance at a perfect game/no-hitter by giving up a home run as the first hit. Probably is more common than I would initially imagine.

    • Colour? I thought everything was in monochrome prior to the 60’s! (jk) What an amazing photo of an amazing era of Dodger history.
