Astros at Dodgers, 7:10 PM PDT, TV: ATT SportsNet-SW, MLBN (out-of-market only), SPNLA

28-year-old Astros’ rookie RHP J.P. France (2-2, 3.42 ERA) makes the eighth start of his big league career; he’ll face the Dodgers’ 23-year-old rookie RHP Emmet Sheehan (0-0, 0.00 ERA) who’s making his second major league start.

Today in Dodgers’ history:

  • 1930 The Dodgers get twelve consecutive hits in a 19-6 win over the Pirates at Forbes Field. Two of the dozen hits in the eight-run sixth inning include a pair of homers hit by Brooklyn outfielder Babe Herman.
  • 1986 The Braves strand 18 runners on base, establishing a National League record. Enough Atlanta players do score to give the team a 6-5 victory over L.A. at Dodger Stadium.

Other notable events in baseball on this date include Ernie Shore’s near-perfect game in 1917, when he relieved Babe Ruth (ejected for arguing balls and strikes and possibly punching the umpire) and retired 26 consecutive batters.
