Game 60, 2023

Yankees at Dodgers, 4:00 PM PDT, TV: ESPN

RHP Domingo Germán (3-3, 3.98 ERA) pitches for the Yankees and RHP Bobby Miller (2-0, 1.64 ERA) does the same for the Dodgers.

Today in Dodgers’ history:

  • 1957 At a seventy-five minute show-down meeting at City Hall with Walter O’Malley and Horace Stoneham, the club presidents of the Dodgers and Giants, respectively, Mayor Robert Wagner is told by the owners neither club has a commitment to move out of New York – and none to stay in the Big Apple. The teams, who have been given permission by the National League to explore the possibility of moving their franchises to the West Coast, are assured by His Honor that the city will be of assistance in replacing the Polo Grounds and Ebbets Field, the aging ballparks the clubs call home.
  • 1964 At Connie Mack Stadium, Sandy Koufax throws his third no-hitter in three years, blanking the Phillies 3-0. The Dodgers’ southpaw, who will add a perfect game to his resumé next season, joins Bob Feller as the only other modern major leaguer to pitch three career hitless games.
  • 1968 Don Drysdale, pitching his sixth consecutive shutout, defeats the Pirates, 5-0. The Dodger right-hander will extend his major league record scoreless streak to 58.2 innings before yielding a run in his next start. Later that evening at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, Robert Kennedy, giving his victory speech for his win in the California primary before being fatally shot, tells his followers in the packed ballroom, “I’d like to express my high regard to Don Drysdale, who pitched his sixth straight shutout tonight.”
  • 1972 The Dodgers retire Roy Campanella’s uniform number 39. Campy, who won the MVP three times catching for Brooklyn in the fifties, joins Jackie Robinson (42) and Sandy Koufax (32) to be honored in this manner.
  • 1976 In an 11-0 victory at Dodger Stadium, Mets right fielder Dave Kingman hits three home runs. Sky King’s two-run dinger and two three-run round trippers drive in eight runs, a new club record.
  • 1990 En route to a 6-0 complete-game victory, 22 year-old Dodger right-hander Ramon Martinez limits Atlanta to three hits. Pedro’s older brother, who will finish the season with a 20-6 record, strikes out 18 batters during the contest.
  • 1998 The Dodgers trade the 1995 National League Rookie of the Year Hideo Nomo (2-7 with a 5.05 ERA) and reliever Brad Clontz to the Mets for pitchers Dave Mlicki and Greg McMichael.

  1. Thru 60 games the Dodgers have an overall record of 35-25. They have a losing record against teams that are currently at .500 or better at 13-16, .448. They are 22-9, .709 against the sub .500 teams. So we are getting the job done against the teams we should be beating. Not doing so well against the better teams and playoff contenders. The very teams we would have to play in the post season.
    We are playing 16 games against sub .500 teams and only 5 against teams with a winning record the rest of June. The Angels for 2 and Asstros for 3 are the only winning teams. With every Monday and one Thursday off, hopefully it will help the Dodgers pitching staff until we get some guys healthy.
    I think AF’s main focus at the trade deadline needs to be the bullpen.

  2. Birds swallow Gnats, Cubbies shredding Pads, while Barves trail Snakes by one in the ninth but are threatening.

    • The Yankees’ radio guy (not John Stirling and not Susan) said he’d been told it was a big toe that hit the concrete step at the base of that gate at full speed.

  3. Well, at least they don’t have to take a red eye into Cincinnati for a game tomorrow.

  4. Did the pitcher sep off the mound before throwing to first? If not, I thought he crossed over the 45 degree line more toward home than allowed.

  5. Second day in a row eagerly waiting for Yankee bullpen and then JD comes through

    • Kenley threw 705 innings for the Dodgers with WHIP of .928. How was that in any way a Kenley Jansen type inning?

      • Jansen seemed to not get hit hard very often. But he would have bleeders and broken bat hits beat him.

  6. I think ScoopLew might be at todays game. I know he was going to at least one game this series.

  7. Surprised Boone not out there giving the umps an ear full. He’s such a hot headed manager.

  8. Top prospect Andy Pagés had shoulder surgery today, out for the season. He was a candidate for a call-up.

  9. Pads have lost, so Dodgers stand to gain ground on everybody in the NL West.

  10. Snakes, Gnats and Rox have lost, Pads about to lose. Dodgers can retake sole possession of first.
