Rockies at Dodgers, 1:10 PM PDT, TV: SPNLA, ATT SportsNet-RM
Hoping to complete the sweep, the Rockies send RHP Chad Bettis (5-1, 5.07 ERA) out to duel with the Dodgers’ RHP Ross Stripling (6-2, 1.98 ERA). Bettis allowed the Giants just two runs over 6 1/3 innings last Tuesday; prior to that he’d given up at least five runs in each of his previous five starts. Stripling went five innings against the Cubs in his last start and gave up just one run but got a no-decision for his efforts.
Today in Dodgers’ history:
- 1968 Bob Gibson’s scoreless inning streak ends abruptly at 47 with a questionable call when the official scorer rules a wild pitch, and not a passed ball, allowed Len Gabrielson to score in the first inning of the Cardinals’ 5-1 victory over the Dodgers at Chavez Ravine. Without the hometown decision, the Redbird right-hander, who will blank San Francisco in his next start, would have been within three innings of breaking the mark of 58 scoreless frames established in June by Don Drysdale, tonight’s losing pitcher.
- 2011 Dee Gordon, in the seventh inning of a 5-0 inter-league victory over the Angels in Anaheim, steals second and third base, and then completes the stolen base cycle by swiping home. The Dodger shortstop becomes the 40th major leaguer to accomplish the trifecta in the same frame.
Lineup when available.
