Game 135, 2021

Dodgers at Giants, 6:45 PM PDT, TV: KNTV, MLBN (out-of-market only), SPNLA

RHP Corey Knebel (3-0, 3.52 ERA) starts for the visiting Dodgers, and he’ll be followed by LHP David Price (4-2, 3.88 ERA). RHP Anthony DeSclafani (11-6, 3.38 ERA) starts for the Giants.

Today in Dodgers’ history:

  • 1917 Grover Cleveland Alexander goes the distance in both games of the Phillies’ doubleheader sweep of Brooklyn at Ebbets Field. In his 18 innings of work, the Philadelphia right-hander limits the Dodgers to seven hits en route to posting 5-0 and 9-3 victories in the twin bill.
  • 1978 At Dodger Stadium, Lee Mazzilli becomes the first Mets player to hit a home run from each side of the plate in a game. The center fielder’s first and seventh inning blasts, respectively hit off southpaw Tommy John and right-hander Charlie Hough, pace the last-place club to an 8-5 victory.

  1. Where in the heck did we come up with this Vasquez guy? Surely we could have found something better. Geez.

  2. Dodgers are in a scoring slump. Since winning 9-0 14 games ago, the Dodgers have scored 5 runs or less in the next 13 games. That is by far the longest stretch this season without scoring at least 6 runs or more. The next longest stretch was 7 games.

    Of course they are 10-3 in those 13 games having scored 46 runs (3.5/game) and only allowed 37 (2.8/game).

    But if it has felt like a while since the Dodgers had a big outburst and won a laugher – it’s because it has been.

  3. Tonight is on broadcast TV – no blackout – so I can actually watch it. Still, the TV will be muted because Kruk and Kuip are the worst broadcasting team in the majors. Pure homer hacks.

    I am listening to Jaime instead.

  4. Phillips pitched really well. If Bryant gets rung up as he should have, we’re still playing.

  5. Prior to Phillips – get this next guy out. And if necessary the one after that as well.

  6. Will it be enough. Who plays 1st base if it goes to the 11th? Maybe Seager 1st, trea ss and Barnes at 2nd?

  7. Only bad thing about this is if it goes to extras, it’s Pujols on second instead of Belli. Big difference in speed.

  8. DeSclafani has been much better tonight than the last few times vs the Dodgers.
    Hopefully he cracks here this inning.
