Brewers at Dodgers, 7:10 PM PDT, TV: Bally Sports Wisconsin, SPNLA
LHP Eric Lauer (8-5, 3.58 ERA) takes the mound for the visitors and LHP Julio Urías (13-6, 2.40 ERA) pitches for the Dodgers. Lauer lost 2-1 to the Dodgers and Tony Gonsolin on May 17, despite giving up just four hits to go with the two runs in seven innings. Two days earlier Urías went five scoreless innings, gave up just four hits and got the 4-0 win against the same Brewers.
On this day in Dodgers’ history:
- 1917 In a 22-inning contest against the Dodgers, Pirates’ outfielder Carson Bigbee sets a major-league record with 11 at-bats. The game was also the fourth straight extra-inning game played by Pittsburgh (total of 59 innings), which sets a National League record.
- 1965 Juan Marichal thinks Johnny Roseboro throws too close to his head returning the ball to Sandy Koufax and attacks the Dodger catcher with his bat. The Los Angeles backstop suffers cuts on the head during the 14-minute brawl.
- 2000 Hitting a solo blast and a three-run round-tripper during a nine-run sixth inning of a 14-6 victory over the Expos, Dodger first baseman Eric Karros becomes the first player in the 111-year franchise history to hit two homers in an inning.
In 1886 Louisville’s Chicken Wolf hits a game-winning inside-the-park home run, thanks to a stray dog impeding Abner Powell from fielding the ball. The canine, who had been sleeping by the fence, refuses to let go of the pant leg of the Reds center fielder, who watches in dismay as the Colonel batter races around the bases in the team’s 5-4 loss at Eclipse Park.

Taylor: 22 Ks in 44 ABs since he returned. Despite his defense, versatility and hustle, you can’t afford to play him.
With a .694 winning percentage you can afford a lot of things.
That luxury goes out the window come playoff time.
No denying that.
Perhaps now, but not in short series in the post-season unless he straightens things out. He simply swings too hard on every swing. Does he not realize that? What about the batting coaches? Roberts?
Taylor has a strong track record, and patience has paid off with Muncy.
He is a hard swinger for sure. If the coaches think bench time will help him they can go that route, but the team’s performance allows them to keep throwing him out there if they think that’s a better way.
Indeed. Like regularly playing a .200-hitting CF who plays Gold Glove defense and an infielder who’s only recently shown signs of hitting above his weight sometime soon.
The Disqus profile page comments and likes are now showing properly on the laptop/desktop, and the count is accurate on your main page.
My profile also is up to date with the comments. Fingers crossed
Well, we Jumbo Jacked them anyhow.
Tough loss for Urias.
KT3. Taylor really needs to make some changes.
Hard to recall a more dismal half inning, and it ain’t over yet.
Finally, it is.
Many teams, even some winning ones, are going through this far more frequently.
Really ugly inning.
Something tells me Bickford will not make the post-season roster (though he’s had some solid moments).
Ouch. Phil, we didn’t need them to double their lead.
Ugh. Bickford not doing it.
This might seal his fate when more pitchers return from the IL.
When some of our relievers come off the IL, Buckford will surely be gone.
Matt Bush might be the most loathsome active player in MLB. His off-the-field history is grotesque.
What did he do?
Why isn’t he still behind bars?
Good question. It would certainly seem appropriate.
Brusdar is back!
Taylor: 21 Ks in 43 ABs since he returned.
Julio deserved better.
Need a walk here
Not in his skills set.
The K was though
Our Cy Young candidate needs a couple of runs.
Or will it be Gonsolin?
Both suffer from too few innings and would really need to outperform Alcantara to take the crown.
Maybe the Dodgers hitters can help with that again.
In 4 career starts against the Dodgers, he is 0-3 with 14.49 ERA. Likely to see him again in Miami this week.
Awesome pitch and got the call
They are going to need to rake the warning track.
Buckner sneaked into one of those uniforms.
Left fielders ar busy
CT3 flashes the leather.
I no longer match the Braves with Milwaukee.
Atlanta should acknowledge tradition and rename the team “Crackers.”
Or the Cokes.
Or the RCs?
I will miss the shift. Major leaguers oughta be able to hit ’em where they ain’t.
Scoring on a bunch of walks seems unearned. Still, it would have been nice if Lux walked there.
Moneyball says hello.
Urias beats Urias.
JT is no Trea
Though it was close, I suppose.
Two out, going on contact, can’t fault him too much – though JT’s probably the slowest runner in the lineup. Also, Yelich made a much better throw than in Milwaukee.
Lauer seemingly not wanting anything to do with Max.
The late great Reyes Moronta is now a Snake. Glad he found a job after being DFA’d.
The uniforms are really ugly. Shoulda used Mexican colors.
Didn’t seem to put too much thought into them.
That is good news,
Does anyone use the site on a mobile phone? I just changed software for that purpose and I’m wondering how it looks.
It’s different! Smaller print. But still works fine.
Thanks. I think I need to tinker with colors etc., but if it functions that’s more than the previous one did.
Never on the phone, though I have used it infrequently on the IPad.
Once in a while. Smaller print and tight margins, but gets the job done.
Tighter margins is what I’ve noticed.
