Game 110, 2019

Dodgers at Rockies, 12:10 PM PDT, TV: ATT SportsNet-RM, SPNLA

Lefty Hyun-Jin Ryu (11-2, 1.74 ERA) goes for the Dodgers while RHP German Márquez (10-5, 4.88 ERA) pitches for the Rockies. Ryu says his command has been shaky recently, but he’s still given up just four runs in his last four starts with a 1.35 ERA to show for them. Márquez has won his last two starts and given up just four runs in those games.

Here’s Kristopher Negron’s first home run as a Dodger:

Gonsolin performed well and got a four-inning save in Tuesday’s game, so of course the Dodgers optioned him back to OKC today and activated Dylan Floro.

Today in Dodgers’ history:

  • 1954 At Ebbets Field, using a borrowed bat, Joe Adcock hits four home runs in one game as well as a double which just misses by inches being his fifth round-tripper, in the Braves’ 15-7 victory over the Dodgers. The Milwaukee first baseman’s 18 total bases, collected on just seven pitches, set a major league record, surpassing the mark established in 1950 by Brooklyn’s Gil Hodges.
  • 1955 The Indians obtained Sal Maglie off waivers from the Giants, who release the 38 year-old right-hander because of his ailing back. The ‘Barber’, who will be used sparingly in Cleveland, will become a major cog next season in the Dodgers’ National League championship after being acquired by the team in May for $100.
  • 1983 Orioles Gold Glover Brooks Robinson, Giants ace Juan Marichal, ten-time American League All-Star infielder George Kell, and long-time Dodger skipper Walter Alston are inducted into the Hall of Fame. Marichal, the Dominican Dandy, becomes the first Latin player to be enshrined at Cooperstown.
  • 2004 Ten minutes prior to the trading deadline, Steve Finley gives the Diamondbacks permission to deal him to the Dodgers. The trade sends the four-time Gold Glove center fielder and backstop Brent Mayne to LA for minor league catching prospect Koyie Hill, flycatcher Reggie Abercrombie, and southpaw Bill Murphy, who was acquired in yesterday’s trade with the Marlins.
  • 2006 The Dodgers trade infielder Cesar Izturis to the Cubs for 300-game winner Greg Maddux. The last minute deadline deal, in which the future Hall of Famer waived his no-trade clause, gives the 40 year-old hurler an opportunity to go to a contender.
  • 2008 In a three-team swap, the much anticipated departure of Manny Ramirez from Beantown is finally accomplished with the unhappy outfielder being traded to the Dodgers. Former Pirates player Jason Bay will now roam left field for the Red Sox, with Pittsburgh receiving outfielder Brandon Moss and pitcher Craig Hansen from Boston as well as getting third baseman Andy LaRoche and right-hander Bryan Morris from Los Angeles to complete the last-minute deal.

Lineup when available.

  1. Productive out from JT. But all due to Verdugo’s daring and a bad throw from Dahl. (I was right the first time.)

  2. In a win-now mode, the Gnats have acquired Scooter Gennett as a rental: “He has missed almost all of 2019 because of a groin injury, and in the 72 plate appearances Gennett has taken, the lefty has managed a meager .217/.236/.261 line without a home run.”

    • Was it just last year – or two years ago – that he was a potential pick up by the Dodgers?

  3. More on Gonsolin from The Athletic:

    “Where he’s at as a younger pitcher as far as innings on his arm throughout his career, we obviously still see him as a starter,” Roberts said. “There’s that fine line of continuing to build him up while there’s starts to be had, whether here or in Triple A. But also, the idea of shortening him up, how that looks, tonight was a little glance into what it could look like.”

    Gonsolin is 25; he was an outfielder until 2016 and a relief pitcher until last year. He definitely has thrown fewer pitches in his career thus far than the kids who’ve thrown from a mound all through high school and college even before they got to pro ball.

  4. No more dreaming of new big name relievers coming to lock down key outs for the Dodgers…

  5. Wondering if framers would be more successful if they didn’t jerk the mitt into the zone so obviously. All the movement might get the ump thinking that ball was really out of the zone.

    • I agree. It seems so obvious if you are moving it that quickly it was not where you wanted it.

  6. Wonder if Joc is low key breathing a sigh of relief that he wasn’t traded.

  7. Greinke to the Astros. Those metaphorical splashes you hear are Yankee fans jumping off the metaphorical Triboro Bridge.

  8. “We feel we have the talent on our roster right now to win the World Series this season.” Friedman’s predicted comment if the Dodgers don’t significantly improve their roster.

  9. Lots of K’s for the Dodgers in the last 2 innings of last night’s game (6) and the first few of this one (5).

  10. I supposed that the Dodgers could make a trade in the next 23 minutes that wouldn’t be announced until after 1 p.m.

  11. Ryu follows up his eight-pitch first inning with an eight-pitch second inning.

  12. Ryu has a 1.74 ERA this season. If you remove the 7 runs in gave up in 4 innings in Denver, his ERA is 1.29.

    • That seems pretty good. Hopefully he can hold them to a lot less than 7 this afternoon!

  13. Well the Trade Season is almost over – but the Tirade Season can go on and on.

  14. The Dodgers have 63 minutes remaining to improve their bullpen via a trade.
