Game 104, 2022

Dodgers at Giants, 6:35 PM PDT, TV: MLBN (out-of-market only), NBCS BA, SPNLA

LHP Julio Urías (10-6, 2.71 ERA) takes the mound for the Dodgers and RHP Alex Cobb (3-5, 4.06 ERA) does so for the Giants. Urías is on a six-game winning streak with one no-decision in the middle of it. Cobb’s on a four-game losing streak; he hasn’t won since May 17.

On this day in Dodgers’ history:

  • 1959 In the second All-Star Game played this summer, Yogi Berra’s two-run home run off Dodgers right-hander Don Drysdale in the third inning at the LA Memorial Coliseum proves to be the difference in the American League’s 5-3 victory over the Senior Circuit. The home run will be the last one hit by a Bronx Bomber in a Mid-Summer Classic game for 41 years until Derek Jeter goes deep in 2001.
  • 1995 Making his first start for the Rockies since being acquired from the Mets, Brett Saberhagen gives up 13 hits and walks three batters, but gets the win in the team’s 9-4 win over the Dodgers. The sellout crowd gives their new hurler an enthusiastic standing ovation when he departs the game with one out in the seventh inning.
  • 1997 Jeromy Burnitz, coming off the bench in the Brewers’ 6-5 loss to Seattle at County Stadium, homers as a pinch hitter for the second consecutive time, tying an American League record. The major league mark for consecutive pinch-hit appearances with a home run is three, shared by Lee Lacy (Dodgers – May 2, 6, and 17, 1978) and Del Unser (Phillies – June 30, July 5 and 10, 1979).
  • 2013 The first-place Dodgers set a franchise record, winning their 13th consecutive game on the road with their 3-0 victory over the Cubs in Chicago. The Giants established the National League mark in 1916 when the team won 17 straight games away from the Polo Grounds.

  1. Seeing those giant outfielders gather for that fly ball reminds me of Grant’s joke about every Dodger tweet these days talks about Trea jumping out of a helicopter and snagging three line drives to preserve a perfect game, whereas every giant tweet is about the four giant infielders colliding on the mound while carry huge bowls of soup.

  2. Jaime pronounces “Gallo” in Spanish, and then corrects himself to Italian (Joey’s the son of Sicilian immigrants).

  3. Well if you are going to have a game where you only score 3 runs (Dodgers 8-24 when scoring 3 or less runs) and The Big 3 go hitless for the first time all year – you may as well just go ahead and beat San Fran.
    Get it done Kimbrel.

  4. Outman BA .667 OPS 1.949
    Vargas BA .667 OPS 1.667

    Small sample size? What small sample size? It’s their whole MLB careers…

  5. Somewhat interesting that Vargas is hitting ahead of Outman. I guess with Outman hitting so well, Vargas will see some good pitches.

  6. Dodgers testing out that vaunted depth tonight with Thompson, Vargas, Outman, and (to a much lesser extent) Barnes all starting.

    • Letting the rooks play. The Gnats are starting one of their own, but that’s primarily out of desperation.

  7. Watching the Bucs and Beerboys, I just learned that Pittsburgh has the first Palauan player in MLB – Bligh Madris. Can’t wait until he becomes the team captain.
