Game 115, 2019

Cardinals at Dodgers, 7:10 PM PDT, TV: FS-M, SPNLA

RHP Michael Wacha (6-4, 5.15 ERA) goes for the Redbirds and RHP Tony Gonsolin (0-1, 5.63 ERA) pitches for the Dodgers. Wacha has bounced between the Cardinals’ rotation and bullpen this season for reasons of inconsistency and the emergence of Daniel Ponce de Leon as a starter. In two games with the Dodgers this season the 25-year-old Gonsolin has pitched eight innings. He’s given up nine hits, seven runs (five earned), one home run, no walks and six strikeouts.

Here are Muncy’s activities in Sunday’s game, including his walk-off double:

Today in Dodgers’ history:

  • 1954 Stan Musial, in a 13-4 rout of the Dodgers in Brooklyn, paces the Cardinals attack, hitting two homers and driving in seven runs. The defeat is Preacher Roe’s first loss to St. Louis at Ebbets Field in four years.
  • 1969 With a titanic blast that clears the right-field pavilion, Willie Stargell becomes the first player to hit a home run completely out of Dodger Stadium. The 506-foot round-tripper helps the Pirates defeat LA, 11-3.

  • 1979 Don Sutton, surpassing Don Drysdale, becomes the Dodgers’ all-time strikeout leader with 2,487 when he fans six in an 8-1 victory over San Francisco at Chavez Ravine. After establishing the mark, and receiving a two-minute standing ovation that he acknowledges by tipping his cap, the right-hander is charged with an automatic ball due to running his fingers across his lips while thanking the crowd.
  • 1979 Outfielders Willie Mays (Giants, Mets) and Hack Wilson (Giants, Cubs, Dodgers, and Phillies) are enshrined into the Hall of Fame. Baseball administrator Warren Giles, who served as the president of the National League from 1951 to 1969, is also inducted during the Cooperstown ceremony.

  1. After tonight’s results, the Dodgers lead the Gnats and Snakes by 18, the Rox by 21.5, and the Pads by 22. The losing Barves now trail LA by 8.5 for best in NL. For best in baseball, Dodgers now lead the idle Minute Maids by one full game and the Yanquis by one-half (.0004).

  2. Joe and Orel having fun talking about favourite songs. Then they ask Dieter to play his fav on the organ after the next pitch. Dieter plays “Charge!” (But later plays Billy Joel’s “We Didn’t Start the Fire.)

  3. After all that it would have been better for Gonsolin to just strike out. Lol. But actually very fun watching him bat. Dodgers could definitely use him as a PH in a pinch.

  4. Seager might be back. Hitting the ball well tonight – and yesterday as well (just not the results).

  5. I missed most of tonight’s game. Looks like Gonsolin didn’t have to labour much.

  6. Sadler says thank you very much to the D this inning. DP to erase the HBP and Beaty with the nice catch against the wall.

    • Third on the team in defensive runs saved behind Belli and Alex, despite leading the team in errors.

  7. Good inning. Although last time they chased Wacha at 3 and 2/3 they had scored 7 runs – but lost the game 11-7.

  8. LAT’d, a perspective on the standings – Dodgers have increased division lead to 17 games over Snakes and Gnats, 21 over Rox, and 21.5 over Pads. As the Barves lost to the Rojos, the Dodgers have 7.5 lead for best in NL. For best in baseball, they remain 1/2 game ahead of both the Yanquis (.0005) and the Minute Maids (.003).
