Game 133, 2021

Braves at Dodgers, 7:10 PM PDT, TV: Bally Sports South, SPNLA

RHP Charlie Morton (12-5, 3.60 ERA) goes for the Braves and RHP Walker Buehler (13-2, 2.02 ERA) does the same for the Dodgers.

On this date in Dodgers’ history:

  • 1950 In front of 14,226 fans at Ebbets Field, Gil Hodges becomes the fourth major leaguer in the century to hit four home runs in one game as Brooklyn routs the Braves, 19-3. The Dodger first baseman also ties the major league record for total bases with 17.
  • 1959 Sandy Koufax fans 18 batters to establish a new National League record for a nine-inning game in the Dodgers’ 5-2 win over San Francisco at the LA Memorial Coliseum. The left-hander’s performance equals the major league mark established in 1938 by Indians fireballer Bob Feller during a 4-1 loss to Detroit.
  • 2010 The Dodgers trade a player to be named (infielder Tony Abreu) to the Diamondbacks in exchange for starter Jon Garland. The 31 year-old right-hander will post a 3-2 record with a 2.72 ERA in his six late-season starts for the Dodgers, before signing as a free agent with San Diego.

  1. Last month, the Asterisks traded infielder Abraham Toro for reliever Kendall Graveman. Tonight, Toro hit a slam off Graveman to put the Mariners up 4-0 in the eighth.

  2. Gnats mount a rally, but it fizzles as the Busted Poseur strikes out (his third of the night). Still 6-1 after seven.

  3. I’ve never thought that much of Morton, but I now admire his durability and productivity at his “advanced” age.

  4. Also on the bright side, the Beerguys didn’t have to use their best relievers tonight. The matchups the next two days aren’t as good as the first two.

    • Passes Rollie Fingers for 14th all time on the career saves list. 5 saves behind Randy Meyers for 13th place.

  5. Braves batters foul it off and hurt themselves. Dodger batters foul it off and hurt the Braves.

  6. We are pleased to inform you that the Beerguys have taken a 2-0 lead over the Gnats in the top of the first.
