Dodgers at Rockies, 6:40 PM PDT, TV: ATT Sportsnet RM, SPNLA
LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu (9-1, 1.27 ERA) takes the mound for the Dodgers at Coors Field today. Like every other non-Colorado pitcher in the universe, his career record there is less than stellar: 1-3, 7.56 ERA in four starts. In his last start he gave up three runs (one earned) to the Rockies in six innings and got no decision. The Rockies counter with RHP Antonio Senzatela (6-5, 4.91 ERA), who’s 13-8 in his career with a 5.29 ERA at home. He’s 1-0 with a 4.73 ERA in four appearances against the Dodgers.
Here are the Dodgers’ six home runs in yesterday’s game:
Today in Dodgers’ history:
- 1969 After ending an 11-game losing streak in their previous contest, the expansion Padres are the victims of a 19-0 shutout for the second time this season when Dodgers right-hander Don Drysdale equals the National League-record for the largest margin of victory in a shutout. L.A. will score more than half of their runs when they tally ten times in the third inning.
- 2000 The Rockies draw their 20 millionth fan to one ballpark faster than any other team in major league history. Taking less than six years, Colorado eclipses the Dodgers’ mark of taking nine years in two stadiums to reach the milestone.
- 2008 In Chavez Ravine, the Dodgers, without the benefit of a hit for the entire game, defeat the Angels, 1-0. The combined losing effort of Halo hurlers Jered Weaver and Jose Arredondo isn’t considered officially as a no-hitter because the home team didn’t have to bat in the ninth (a nitpick if I ever heard one).
