Game 30, 2024

Dodgers at Blue Jays, Time: 10:37 AM PDT, TV: MLBN (out-of-market only), SN1, SPNLA, SportsNet+, TVA Sports

Bullpen game for the Dodgers. RHP Michael Grove (0-0, 6.00 ERA) will start for them, while Kevin Gausman (0-3, 5.57 ERA) starts for the Jays.

Today in Dodgers’ history:

  • 1922 At Ebbets Field, Lee King drives in seven runs in the Phillies’ 10-7 win over the Robins. The Philadelphia outfielder will collect a total of only 15 RBIs this season playing with Philadelphia and the Giants.
  • 1985 Dodger southpaw Fernando Valenzuela sets an MLB mark with 41 consecutive scoreless innings at the start of a season without allowing an earned run when he blanks the Padres through eight innings. In the top of the ninth, Tony Gwynn snaps the southpaw’s scoreless streak with a solo home run, giving the Friars an eventual 1-0 victory at Chavez Ravine.
  • 2012 Bryce Harper makes his much-anticipated debut in the Nationals’ 4-3 loss to Los Angeles at Chavez Ravine. The 19 year-old rookie center fielder, who drives in the potential go-ahead run in the ninth inning with a sacrifice fly, doubles in the top of the seventh off Chad Billingsley for his first major league hit.

  1. Lame effort by the offense today. 0 for 9 RISP, 7 LOB. Pitching was more than adequate.

    Oh well, took the series. On to the desert.

    • Still early days, but results so far are encouraging. Impressed with his using all fields.

    • Gausman was mediocre with Orioles for several years, parlayed one good season with Gnats into the contract of his life with Scrub Jays.
