Game 106, 2022

Padres at Dodgers, 7:10 PM PDT, TV: BSSD, MLBN (out-of-market only), SPNLA

LHP Sean Manaea (6-5, 4.25 ERA) pitches for the new-look Padres and RHP Tony Gonsolin (12-1, 2.41 ERA) goes for the Dodgers. Manaea had a winning July (3-2) but a lousy ERA (5.40). Gonsolin’s July was somewhat similar: 3-1 W-L record but 4.40 ERA.

Today in Dodgers’ history:

  • 1954 Stan Musial, in a 13-4 rout of the Dodgers in Brooklyn, paces the Cardinals attack, hitting two homers and driving in seven runs. The defeat is Preacher Roe’s first loss to St. Louis at Ebbets Field in four years.
  • 1969 With a titanic blast that clears the right-field pavilion, Willie Stargell becomes the first player to hit a home run completely out of Dodger Stadium. The 506-foot round-tripper helps the Pirates defeat LA, 11-3.

  • 1979 Don Sutton, surpassing Don Drysdale, becomes the Dodgers’ all-time strikeout leader with 2,487 when he fans six in an 8-1 victory over San Francisco at Chavez Ravine. After establishing the mark, and receiving a two-minute standing ovation that he acknowledges by tipping his cap, the right-hander is charged with an automatic ball due to running his fingers across his lips while thanking the crowd.
  • 1979 Outfielders Willie Mays (Giants, Mets) and Hack Wilson (Giants, Cubs, Dodgers, and Phillies) are enshrined into the Hall of Fame. Baseball administrator Warren Giles, who served as the president of the National League from 1951 to 1969, is also inducted during the Cooperstown ceremony.

  1. The cows are off the farm in SD and the loaded lineup comes to LA to strut their stuff. A few innings left but gotta enjoy the message Dodgers are sending.

    • Emulating Chick Hearn?

      This game’s in the refrigerator: the door is closed, the lights are out, the eggs are cooling, the butter’s getting hard and the Jell-O’s jigglin’!

  2. Thank you, WinnipegDave, for posting the photo of my friend Doug — also a rabid Dodger Fan — and me at the Dodgers-Giants game yesterday, We sat on the top desk — the views of the bay are wonderful — the level reminiscent of where I almost always sat at Dodger Stadium after it opened in 1962. In a way, it was cathartic seeing the Dodgers play two days after Vinnie’s death. I have gone to many Dodgers-Giants games in San Francisco, and the Giants’ fans were strangely muted yesterday, even polite to me in my Brooklyn hat and Jackie Robinson shirt. The Giants are not a good team, to put it mildly. There is no one in their lineup that one needs to pitch around. And as a longtime friend who is a lifelong fan of the Giants — starting in Manhattan — said, you have to pitch around EVERYONE (his emphasis) in our lineup. The Dodgers won, as you know, 5-3, and have now beaten San Francisco eight straight times. The injury to Kershaw was quite unfortunate but not unexpected, at least for me. He has been a tweak away from another stay on the DL or IL for a long, long time. Who knows, but was that the last time we will see Kershaw pitch for the Dodgers? And coming on the heels of Vinnie’s passing, there was an eerie connection.

  3. Old friend Jake Lamb just got a key hit for Seattle, helping the Rainiers tie the Angles 3-3.

  4. Hey my friends. Out to dinner with family in Edwards Colorado so this was a nice score to find on GameDay!

    • Had to look that one up. I’ll be visiting my cousin in Denver next month, but we’re going via US 50.

  5. Kim is a really good shortstop – when Tatís returns, could be a defensive dropoff.

  6. Love the songs the Dodgers radio broadcast plays as they come back from commercial break each inning. This one: Like taking candy from a baby.

  7. Soto seems happy to be in the thick of it (as much as 12 1/2 behind is in the thick of it).

      • Which, from there, any team can do damage to the dreams of their far superior brethren.

        • That’s why I detest the mild card. There should two divisions in each league, and winners play to advance to the Series.

      • They have really lengthened the line up with these three new bats and Tatis will show up at some point
