Diamondbacks at Dodgers, 7:10 PM PDT, TV: BS Arizona, SPNLA
The D-Backs’ LHP Madison Bumgarner (6-15, 5.01 ERA) meets the Dodgers’ RHP Dustin May (2-2, 3.46 ERA). Bumgarner is having the worst year of his career by far; he’s lost six of his last nine starts, all since his last win. He’s given up 42 earned runs in that span of 48 1/3 innings.
Here’s a wonderful profile of Dusty Baker at The Athletic.
On this date in Dodgers’ history:
- 1934 “If I’da known he was gonna throw one, I’da thrown one, too.” – Dizzy Dean, after his brother threw a no-hitter in the nightcap of a double-header. In the second game of a doubleheader at Ebbets Field, 22 year-old Cardinal hurler Paul Dean, called Daffy by his teammates, becomes the fifth rookie to throw a no-hitter, beating the Dodgers, 3-0. His brother Dizzy held Brooklyn hitless until the eighth inning in the opener, settling for a two-hitter in the team’s 13-0 blanking of the Bums.
- 1952 In front of the second largest crowd this season, with many of the 8,822 fans rooting for the Dodgers, the Braves play their final home game in Boston. Brooklyn catcher Roy Campanella hits the last home run at Braves Field in an 8-2 victory over the Milwaukee-bound club.
- 1969 In a 3-3 tie in the bottom of the tenth inning at Candlestick Park, LA’s Pete Mikkelsen quickly retires the first two Giants batters, but then is ordered to intentionally walk Willie McCovey, who is 4-for-4 in the game. The Dodger reliever proceeds to issue free passes to the next two hitters unintentionally, loading the bases, and then loses the game when shortstop Maury Wills boots pinch-hitter Jim Davenport’s ground ball.
