Mariners at Dodgers, 6:40 PM PDT, TV: ROOTNW, SPNLA
RHP Justin Dunn (1-1, 4.85 ERA) makes his eighth MLB start tonight. He gave up seven hits and two runs in six innings in his last start and earned his first big league win. That was the longest he’d ever pitched since being promoted from the minors. He’ll face the Dodgers’ RHP Ross Stripling (3-1, 3.97 ERA), who gave up four unearned runs (six overall) in his last start and was pulled in the fifth inning.
Here’s a video recap of yesterday’s game:
Today in Dodgers’ history:
- 1992 Kevin Gross, retiring 22 of the final 23 batters he faces on his wife’s birthday, no-hits the Giants at Dodger Stadium, 2-0. The LA right-hander’s no-no averts the team from being swept in a four-game series at home against the Giants for the first time in 69 years.
- 2013 Clayton Kershaw blanks the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park, 5-0, giving the Dodgers their first double-digit winning streak since 2006. The team’s 42 victories in their last fifty games, including a 25-3 mark since the All-Star break, equals the 1941 Yankees and 1942 Cardinals for the best record for that span of games since 1900.
