Dodgers at Nationals, 4:05 PM PDT, TV: MASN 2, MLBN (out-of-market only), SPNLA
LHP Tyler Anderson (4-0, 4.04 ERA) takes the mound for the Dodgers; he’ll face RHP Joan Adon (1-7, 6.38 ERA). While Anderson is off to an excellent start this season, Adon is obviously not. He has had three starts in which he gave up six, five and four runs in fewer than five innings each time.
Today in Dodgers’ history:
- 2002 Shawn Green hits four home runs in one game to become the 14th player in major league history, the second this month, to accomplish the feat. The Dodger right fielder’s 6-for-6 performance in Milwaukee’s Miller Park, which also includes a single and double, breaks Joe Adcock’s 1954 mark for total bases by one, with a total of 19. In the same game the Dodgers set a franchise mark when the team hits eight homers in one contest, bashing the Brewers, 16-3. Shawn Green’s four round-trippers accounts for half of the record-breaking barrage with Brian Jordan, Hiram Bocachica, Adrian Beltre, and Dave Hansen also contributing four-baggers in the Miller Park contest.
