Game 12, 2022

Braves at Dodgers, 12:10 PM PDT, TV: BS South, MLBN (out-of-market only), SPNLA

The Braves give the ball to RHP Charlie Morton (1-1, 6.10 ERA) while the Dodgers hand theirs to RHP Tony Gonsolin (0-0, 1.29 ERA). Morton beat the Reds in his first start and lost to San Diego in his second. His longest outing was his second at 5 1/3 innings. Gonsolin has made two starts and gone three innings against the Rockies and four against the Reds.

Today in Dodgers’ history:

  • 1999 A crowd of 37,317 fans enjoys a 3-2 victory over the Braves when LA surpasses the 100 million mark in attendance at Dodger Stadium. The ballpark opened in 1962, four seasons after the franchise moved from Brooklyn to the west coast.
  • 2011 Bud Selig announces MLB is taking over operations of the Dodgers because of concerns over team finances and the ability of Frank McCourt to run the franchise. Los Angeles is facing substantial debt payments, which the owner plans to meet by using funding from the club’s new $2.5 billion, 20-year media-rights deal with Fox Sports, but the Commissioner has withheld his approval of the agreement between the News Corp.’s media company and the team.
  • 2012 The Reds become the fifth major league team to record their 10,000th franchise victory with a 9-4 win over Chicago at Wrigley Field. Cincinnati joins the Giants, Cubs, Dodgers, Cardinals, and Braves in reaching the milestone.

    • Cey’s recognition as a third baseman and hitter suffered because his career and Mike Schmidt’s overlapped almost exactly, 1972-87 for Cey and 1972-89 for Schmidt.

  1. Treinen to the IL with shoulder soreness. Cleavinger recalled. First Heaney, now Treinen. Injury bug is rearing its ugly head.

  2. Just read that MLB is extending Bauers leave until April 29th. What a total load of crap.

      • I think he is intentionally sticking it to the Dodgers. He doesn’t have to do anything to Bauer. Bauer is not being prosecuted for a crime so all Manfred has to do is put him back on active status. Then the onus is on the Dodgers. He basically washes his hands of the whole mess. Dragging this thing on is ridiculous.

  3. The Gnats’ superstar catching “prospect” has fanned 18 times in 29 ABS (a .621 average).

  4. Ohtani with 5 innings of no hit, 11 SO ball in Houston. Also has a double, 2 RBI, and a run scored in 2 AB leading off. He is a free agent after the 2023 season. If the Angels decide that they can’t afford to keep him, he may be available in a trade next year. I would hope the Dodgers would be in on him.

  5. That was a quick one (that I would check in on the game but it was over). But yay!, anyway.

    • Hope the Mets retake the best record tonight against the Gnats. We will take care of them later.

  6. I love the big inning as much as the next guy (Hi next guy, nice to see you). But it’s also gratifying to see the Dodgers put up some picket fences and scoring singles in multiple innings.

    • Totally agree. You can’t always count on having a big inning. Kind of like the 3 point shot in Basketball. It is nice when it is there, but, you need to find a way to scrape out points when it is not falling.

  7. 93 mph fastball right down the middle and Muncy couldn’t square it up. Gotta wonder if that elbow injury is effecting his swing.

  8. Time to start another seven-game winning streak, which would include a sweep of the Padres next weekend. Would love to see Mookie (.171) and Max (.139) shake off their early-season slumps.
