Game 9, 2019

Dodgers at Rockies, 5:10 PM PDT, TV: ATT SportsNet RM, SPNLA

The Dodgers’ RHP Walker Buehler (0-0, 15.00 ERA) tries to notch his first win of the young season. He gave up five runs in the fourth inning to the D-Backs in his first start after very little spring training time. He was 0-1 with a 4.00 ERA at Coors Field in three starts last year. He’ll face the Rockies’ RHP Jon Gray (0-1, 4.05 ERA), who struck out 10 in his first start of the year against the Marlins and left after 6 2/3 innings with a cramp in his right calf.

Here’s Bellinger’s 6th HR of the season, a three-run clout in the fifth inning of Friday’s game:

On this day in Dodgers’ history:

  • 2001 In the home opener at Veterans Stadium, Hall of Fame pitcher Jim Bunning’s number 14 jersey is retired. Kentucky’s Republican U.S. senator, who compiled a 224-184 record in his 17-year career pitching for the Tigers, Phillies, Pirates, and Dodgers, joins Richie Ashburn (1), Robin Roberts (36), Steve Carlton (32), and Mike Schmidt (20) as the fifth player to have his number retired by the Phillies.
  • 2004 Adrian Beltre becomes the 36th player in baseball history to hit 100 home runs before the age of 25. The Dodger third baseman joins Cal Ripken Jr. and Lou Gehrig to have exactly 100 homers on their 25th birthday.
  • 2016 The Padres, with their 7-0 loss at Petco Park, become the first team to be shut out in the first three games of the regular season, surpassing the dubious mark set by the Browns, who opened the 1943 campaign with 26 straight scoreless innings. San Diego also dropped their first two decisions of the three-game series against the Dodgers, 15-0 and 3-0.

Lineup when available.

  1. Kenley postgame:

    Jansen was under orders from his doctor not to get dehydrated, which was the genesis of his irregular heartbeat. He said he consumed seven liters of water daily since he arrived. He also had a precautionary EKG taken on Friday, the results of which were sent to his cardiologist.

    “He’s in Bangkok, he texted me, he was watching,” said Jansen. “I know he’s going to ask why I gave up that double.”

  2. Pollock can’t do everything, slide for instance. That slide was almost Puig like.

  3. This might have been mentioned yesterday but I guess the race is on between Freese and Turner. Who will be the last position player to hit a HR for the Dodgers?

  4. While I was off gazing at Alpha Centauri, you lot appear to have done a pretty good job. I’ll watch the rest on my iPad in bed.

  5. This is my first time hearing the new Dodger play by play guy. Takes a bit of getting use to.

  6. Colorado is not the place to go when you are working on lowering a high era.

    • I thought there was a runner on for the Rockies for some reason. But it was only a solo blast.

  7. I was going to watch on but since I am in Colorado it is blacked out but I get to watch on ROOT TV because Colorado doesn’t have the Dodger broadcast problem. I don’t have to miss a single double play.

  8. At game time, I’ll be doing a skywatch at a community observatory in Combarbalá (Chilean desert is a great place to watch the night skies). I might join in here a bit later.
