Dodgers at Rockies, 5:40 PM PDT, TV: ATT Sportsnet RM, MLBN (out-of-market only), SPNLA
RHP Walker Buehler (8-1, 2.96 ERA) takes the mound for the Dodgers, undoubtedly with an extra spring in his step after his alma mater’s College World Series win yesterday. He’ll face the Rockies’ RHP Peter Lambert (2-0, 5.85 ERA). Buehler is 2-0 with a 1.93 ERA against the Rockies this season while Lambert got a no-decision in his one start against the Dodgers June 22 when he gave up three earned runs in five innings.
Houston Mitchell of the LA Times looks at which reliever might help the Dodgers.
Here’s Russell Martin’s 1-2-3 inning yesterday:
Today in Dodgers’ history:
- 1980 Dodger southpaw Jerry Reuss, facing only 28 batters, no-hits the Giants at Candlestick Park, 8-0. Shortstop Bill Russell’s errant throw on Jack Clark’s grounder with two outs in the first inning deprives the 31 year-old left-hander from tossing a perfect game.
- 2011 Citing MLB refusal to sign off on a transaction that would provide the team with $385 million, the Dodgers file for bankruptcy protection in a Delaware court. Although there will be no disruption to the day-to-day status of the franchise, the Chapter 11 financing permits the Dodgers to use $150 million for daily operations and gives owner Frank McCourt time to seek a media deal that will ensure the club’s long-term financial stability.
