Game 142, 2019

Rockies at Dodgers, 7:10 PM PDT, TV: ATT Sportsnet-RM, SPNLA

RHP Antonio Senzatela (8-9, 6.95 ERA) goes for the Rockies. He’ll face the Dodgers’ suddenly-mortal LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu (12-5, 2.35 ERA). Senzatela got half his wins this season in one month (June) and has been struggling the rest of the year. Ryu has hit a rough patch, going 0-3 with an 11.05 ERA in his last three starts and giving up five of the 15 HRs he’s surrendered all year in those games. The Dodgers need him to recover his form soon.

Here are the back-to-back HRs by “the old guys” which gave the Dodgers the lead in yesterday’s game:

Today in Dodgers’ history:

  • 1924 The Brooklyn Robins (Dodgers) take a twin bill from the Braves, sweeping their fourth doubleheader in four consecutive days. Between September 1-3, the Brooks beat the Phillies six times.
  • 1966 The Dodgers become the first team to draw two million fans at home and two million on the road as 18,670 Crosley Field patrons watch Los Angeles beat their hometown Reds, 8-6.
  • 1969 After thirty-one games, the third longest consecutive game hitting streak in National League history ends as Dodger Willie Davis is stopped by Dick Kelley and Gary Ross in a 3-0 loss to the Padres.
  • 2017 J.D. Martinez becomes the 18th major leaguer, joining Reds utilityman Scooter Gennett as the second player this season, to hit four home runs in one game when he goes deep in the top of the ninth inning In the Diamondbacks’ 13-0 rout of the Dodgers at Chavez Ravine. The Arizona outfielder, who was acquired in a trade from the Tigers in July, has one more home run than the opponent’s total amount of hits.
