Game 39, 2022

Dodgers at Phillies, 3:10 PM PDT, TV: NBCSP, SPNLA

RHP Mitch White (1-0, 4.82 ERA) makes his first start of the 2022 season for the Dodgers. He’ll be opposed by the Phillies’ RHP Aaron Nola (1-4, 3.64 ERA). White has appeared in one game since coming off the Covid-19 IL, where he’d been since April 30. Nola went seven innings against the Dodgers last Sunday; he gave up two runs on four hits and got no decision.

Today in Dodgers’ history:

  • 1927 For the second consecutive day, an umpire at Ebbets Field is the target of fan abuse. Arbiter Frank Wilson needs a police escort after the Robins (Dodgers) drop a twin bill to the Cubs.
  • 1952 The Dodgers score a major league record fifteen first-inning runs en route to a 19-1 rout over the Reds at Ebbets Field. After Ewell Blackwell retires the first batter, the next 19 Brooklyn batters reached base (10 hits, 7 walks, and 2 HBP), including Pee Wee Reese getting to first base three times during the frame.
  • 1963 Jim Maloney ties a major league record shared by Max Surkont (1953 Braves) and Johnny Podres (1962 Dodgers) when he strikes out eight consecutive batters, beginning with the last out in the first inning, in the Reds’ 2-0 victory over Milwaukee at County Stadium. The Cincinnati right-hander also equals the franchise mark with 16 strikeouts in one game, established by Noodles Hahn in 1901.
  • 2000 Major League Baseball has its first six grand-slam day less than one year after establishing the mark with five, with Garret Anderson (Angels), J.T. Snow (Giants), Brian Hunter (Phillies), Jason Giambi (A’s), and Adrian Beltre and Shawn Green (Dodgers) all contributing to the record. The NL also set a league record, blasting four of the six base-loaded homers.

Lineups when available.

  1. Okay, guys. Time to get ready for Aida, which requires digging real, fancy clothes out of my closet and making sure they still fit and haven’t been eaten by moths. Get us the win, okay?

  2. Gotta score in these situations, guys. Maybe Dino could have been more aggressive with Muncy knowing who was coming up. However, he’s my hero now, so I won’t second-guess him!

  3. So, it’ll be another come-from-behind win. Meanwhile, at Software Stadium, the Gnats have lost again to the Pads, so it’s must-win to keep the 1.5-game lead.

  4. DBacks and Rockies coming back to earth. I think San Diego will be our main nemesis this year.

  5. I see Harper is back. Makes their lineup much better. Might want to pitch around him in crucial situations.

  6. Do we have any MLB.TV subscribers here? I’m moving to a condo for at least a month, and the basic cable package doesn’t include the Dodgers channel, and the provider (Hawaiian Telcom) doesn’t include it in premium channels either.

    I’m wondering if the $25/month deal lets me see all Dodgers games or do I need to pay the $120 for the whole season for one team. Anyone know?

    • Pretty sure that gets you access to all teams games for one month. Then it automatically renews if you don’t cancel. Might want to check the blackout restrictions for your locale before you purchase.

        • MLB really knows how to promote the sport…

          However, I believe it’s possible to bypass the blackout if your regular cable provider – presuming you’ve not cancelled it – includes the Dodgers. You have to enter that when signing in.

          • Hmm. I’ll check, thanks.

            Hmm. I’ve got three receiver choices, but I’m not taking a cable box, just a TV. The provider to this condo is Hawaiian Tel, not Spectrum cable, and it doesn’t have SPNLA available. Also, it’s 15 miles away in town.

            Well, we’ll see.

          • If you have a cable or satellite provider, it should work anywhere. We don’t have either, so we can’t see the Gnats or the A’s on MLBTV unless we’re geographically out of area (no blackouts in Buenos Aires, even in the post-season).
