Cubs at Dodgers, 4:05 PM PDT, TV: ESPN
LHP José Quintana (4-6, 3.89 ERA) takes the mound for the Cubs to face LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu (9-1, 1.36 ERA) of the Dodgers. Quintana struggled for 4 2/3 innings against the Rockies last Tuesday while giving up four runs in a Cubs loss. Ryu could have won his tenth game of the season last Monday night had the bullpen not blown a two-run lead after he left the game, just as Buehler could have won his eighth last night had Jansen not surrendered a go-ahead home run in the ninth.
Jansen gave up five HRs in all of 2017, then 13 in 2018, and now five in 28 games in 2019.
Today in Dodgers’ history:
- 1933 Last year’s National League batting champ, Lefty O’Doul, and pitcher Watty Clark, a 20-game winner last season, are traded by the Dodgers to the Giants for first baseman Sam Leslie. Brooklyn’s newest infielder will bat .311 during his three seasons with the team, before returning to New York in 1936.
Lineup when available.
