Game 67, 2019

Dodgers at Angels, 7:07 PM PDT, TV: FS-W, SPNLA

The visiting Dodgers hand All-Star candidate LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu (9-1, 1.35 ERA) to the Angel Stadium mound tonight. He’ll face rookie RHP Griffin Canning (2-2, 3.52 ERA). Ryu leads the NL in ERA and is tied for first in wins; he’s only faced the Angels three times in his career but is 2-0 and a 0.83 ERA against them. Canning is the Angels’ #2 prospect according to MLB Pipeline; he went six innings in his last start, giving up four runs and taking the loss.

If you somehow missed it, here are Muncy and Bumgarner after Max’s home run yesterday:

Today in Dodgers’ history:

  • 2012 Bobby Abreu, who was tied with Mickey Mantle for 109th place on the all-time hit list, surpasses the Yankee legend with a second-inning double in L.A.’s 8-2 interleague victory over Seattle at Safeco Field. The 38 year-old outfielder has collected 2,416 hits playing for the Astros, Phillies, Yankees, Angels, and Dodgers.

  1. Missed this one. 4:15 am start for me. Looks to have been painful! Ugh. Be nice if Joe agreed to go down to the farm to work it out.

    • Given the Dodgers’ division lead, the idea of putting Kelly in a high-leverage situation after several encouraging outings made sense. He took a major step backwards, though.

      Fortunately, as fixes go, the bullpen is one of the easier shortcomings to address at the trade deadline.

  2. Freese apparently unavailable tonight. Less important in a DH game, but could still be missed.

  3. Snakes are clubbing the Fillies, while Cachorros and Rox are playing a close one at Coors (Darvish is stinking it up). Dodgers unlikely to increase division lead tonight.

  4. Floro has now allowed seven earned runs in his last 1.2 innings as his ERA has exploded from 0.44 to 3.13.

  5. And there’s our Achilles’ heel in plain sight for everyone to see, including the front office.

  6. By allowing one earned run in six innings tonight, Ryu’s ERA increased from 1.35 to 1.36.

  7. Snakes and Rox have won, so Dodgers can only gain ground on idle Pads and Gnats.

  8. I have my writer’s group tonight but will be peeking in now and again. Keep the Dodger wins coming, please.

  9. I went to the Dodgers-Giants game yesterday. Fortunately, our seats were in the shade on the top deck, which affords a great view of the bay. No need for me to add to the comments on this site and elsewhere about Bumgarner’s behavior. I saw it in person.

  10. Pleased to be able to watch tonight, but disappointed that the game will not be played under baseball rules.
