Dodgers at Brewers, 4:10 PM PDT, TV: FS1, FS-WI, SPNLA
The Dodgers give LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu (2-0, 3.07 ERA) the ball 12 days after he left a game in the second inning with a mild groin strain. The Brewers counter with RHP Chase Anderson (1-0, 4.50 ERA), who’s making a spot start replacing Freddie Peralta. Anderson’s longest outing from the bullpen this year was 43 pitches.
Kiké’s go-ahead HR from last night:
- 1999 A crowd of 37,317 fans enjoys a 3-2 victory over the Braves when LA surpasses the 100 million mark in attendance at Dodger Stadium. The ballpark opened in 1962, four seasons after the franchise moved from Brooklyn to the west coast.
- 2011 Bud Selig announces MLB is taking over operations of the Dodgers because of concerns over team finances and the ability of Frank McCourt to run the franchise. Los Angeles is facing substantial debt payments, which the owner plans to meet by using funding from the club’s new $2.5 billion, 20-year media-rights deal with Fox Sports, but the Commissioner has withheld his approval of the agreement between the News Corp.’s media company and the team.
- 2012 The Reds become the fifth major league team to record their 10,000th franchise victory with a 9-4 win over Chicago at Wrigley Field. Cincinnati joins the Giants, Cubs, Dodgers, Cardinals, and Braves in reaching the milestone.
