Dodgers at Giants, 4:15 PM PDT, TV: Fox
LHP Clayton Kershaw (4-0, 1.80 ERA) comes off the IL, where he’d been with a sacroiliac inflammation. He’ll start today in place of Urías, who’s getting an extra day of rest before starting tomorrow. He’ll face the Giants’ LHP Sam Long (0-1, 2.35 ERA). This will be his 12th appearance but just his 4th start this season. He’s gone no longer than three innings in any game yet.
This day in Dodgers’ history:
- 1957 The Dodgers’ Roy Campanella surpasses former Cub and Giant backstop Gabby Hayes to establish a new National League mark when he hits his 237th career round-tripper as a catcher. Campy’s historic home run comes off Ray Crone in the seventh inning of Brooklyn’s 7-2 loss to the Braves at Ebbets Field.
- 1972 LA outfielders Manny Mota and Willie Davis both hit inside-the-park homers down the foul lines at Dodger Stadium off Bucs’ starter Bruce Kison. Roberto Clemente’s seventh inning home run over the fence proves to be the difference in Pittsburgh’s 7-5 victory, their 21st win the last 26 games.
Also, in 1938 In the first of two consecutive no-hitters he will hurl, Johnny Vander Meer keeps the Boston Bees hitless in Cincinnati’s 3-0 victory at Crosley Field. The Reds’ southpaw, in the first night game played in Brooklyn, continues his no-no mojo four days later by beating the Dodgers, 6-0, without giving up a hit in the Ebbets Field contest.
