Dodgers at Giants, 12:45 PM PDT, TV: MLBN (out-of-market only), NBCS BA, SPNLA
LHP Clayton Kershaw (7-3, 2.66 ERA) goes for the Dodgers and RHP Jakob Junis (4-2, 2.78 ERA) goes for the Giants. Kershaw took a 3-2 lead into the sixth inning of his last start but then gave up four consecutive hits and the Giants took the lead for good. Junis was 0-1 for July.
Today in Dodgers’ history:
- 1908 In Brooklyn, the last-place Cardinals blank the Brooklyn Superbas (Dodgers), 3-0. The entire Washington Park contest is played with just one ball.
- 1941 Mickey Owens becomes the first catcher to handle three foul pop ups in one frame. The Brooklyn backstop’s third inning defense contributes to the Dodgers’ 11-6 victory over New York at Ebbets Field.
- 1942 In a military relief game at the Polo Grounds, which will be the last war-time twilight game played, Pee Wee Reese’s grand slam in the top of the ninth, which puts the Dodgers up 5-1, doesn’t count, because of the 9:10 pm government curfew. The game ends up as a 1-1 tie with the Giants.
- 1948 Ernie Harwell, filling in for Red Barber, who is recovering from a bleeding ulcer, calls his first major league game as the Dodgers beat the Cubs at Ebbets Field, 5-4. To obtain the future Hall of Fame broadcaster, Brooklyn general manager Branch Rickey trades minor league catcher Cliff Draper to the Atlanta Crackers.
First start in Dodger blue for Joey Gallo.
