Game 93, 2019

Dodgers at Red Sox, 4:10 PM PDT, TV: NESN, SPNLA, FB-Watch

In a rematch of last year’s World Series, the NL West-leading Dodgers face the AL East-third place Red Sox. The Dodgers send RHP Kenta Maeda (7-4, 3.76 ERA) to the hill at Fenway Park to try to get a win. His last one was on May 31. He’s lost three of the six starts he’s made since then, but he allowed just a .182 batting average and compiled a 4.05 ERA in those games. The Sox counter with LHP Eduardo Rodriguez (9-4, 4.65 ERA), who was inconsistent during the first half but has had a 3.75 ERA since May 26.

Today in Dodgers’ history:

  • 1966 The National League All-Stars edge the AL, 2-1, in a game played at the newly-built Busch Stadium when hometown favorite Tim McCarver scores the winning run on Dodger shortstop Maury Wills’s tenth-inning walk-off single, with Giants hurler Gaylord Perry getting the victory by tossing a scoreless ninth and tenth inning. The 105-degree weather, 113 degrees on the playing surface, results in nearly 150 people needing treatment for heat exhaustion.

  1. I am not so much loving this every score is from the long ball trend. I miss small ball and scoring with singles and doubles etc.

  2. Facebook just lost the video stream, so instead I’m watching some little kid slurping soup. Not a fan.

  3. Wow, that neither looked nor sounded like a ball that was going out of the stadium!

  4. Coming up on 3am here. Will call it a morning after Turner, Belli and Max.

  5. I am enjoying Tim N on the radio – obviously he knows his Boston related stuff.
    But even in general I have grown to like him, his voice and cadence and personality.

  6. I’m 74 miles north of Boston and it is absolutely pouring with wind gusts. Fans would be scampering for cover if this hit Fenway.

  7. I’m about to start exercising so no more future person for an hour or so. But this first – ugh!!!!!!

  8. Old friends Chase De Jong, Matt Kemp and Wilmer Font all released today according to Trade Rumors.

    • I was gonna say, I didn’t realize we even had Josh Thole (aka R.A. Dickey’s personal catcher when he beat Clayton for the Cy Young).

    • Hey, that actually works, even here in Rhody. No HD, and the sound is muffled. but it’s definitely Joe and Orel.

    • I attended my only Fenway game in April of 1984. I drove up and parked immediately outside the park, then walked up and purchased a ticket.

      • The good old days. That pretty much ended around 2000. There used to be all sorts of places to park for free near the park (old industrial complexes, mostly), but they were all developed. If I were to go I’d take the T in from Quincy.

        • I’m driving in and walking to the ballpark from Financial District but will use UBER to get back to car. I used Stubhub for tickets. Nothing as easy as it was.
