Game 79, 2021

Giants at Dodgers, 7:10 PM PDT, TV: NBCS BA, SPNLA

The visiting Giants send RHP Anthony DeSclafani (8-2, 2.77 ERA) to the Dodger Stadium mound to face the home team’s RHP Trevor Bauer (7-5, 2.57 ERA).

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).

Lineup when available.

  1. 6 out of 9 innings lead off guy on (at least momentarily). Makes for a tense game.

  2. This is when I really miss Vin, who was always so soothing. Steiner is simply irritating.

  3. Against the Asterisks, the Orioles try to blow a five-run lead in the ninth, but they hang on 9-7.

  4. Don’t forget to vote for the All-Star Starters. I couldn’t vote for Mookie unfortunately. Voted for all Dodgers except for him. Taylor is much more deserving. Castellanos and Winker are no brainers.

  5. I am still a bit concerned about how many homers our starters are giving up. At least most of them are solo shots. They don’t kill you.

  6. Tonight in Milwaukee, with the score tied 4-4 in the eighth, the Beerboys scored ten runs to slam the Cubbies.

  7. No ears, any mention of what DeSclafani’s ERA would be if he didn’t have to face the Dodgers?
