Game 19, 2021

Padres at Dodgers, 7:10 PM PDT, TV: Bally Sports San Diego, MLBN (out-of-market only), SPNLA

The Padres send LHP Ryan Weathers (1-0, 1.93 ERA) out to make his second career big league start. His first was last Friday against the Dodgers, and he went 3 2/3 innings. He gave up one hit and no runs while striking out three. He’ll face RHP Walker Buehler (1-0, 2.00 ERA), who’s gone six innings in each of his first three starts and given up no more than two runs in any of them.

Today in Dodgers’ history:

  • 1898 Today marks the first time two no-hitters occur on the same day when Orioles (NL) right-hander Jay Hughes and Reds southpaw Theodore Breitenstein keep their opponents hitless, beating the Beaneaters, 8-0, and the Pirates, 11-0, respectively. A double no-no on the same date will not happen again until June 29, 1990, when A’s Dave Stewart and Dodger Fernando Valenzuela accomplish the feat with gems against the Blue Jays and Cardinals.
  • 2007 The Red Sox become the fifth big-league team to hit four consecutive homers in an inning when Manny Ramirez, J.D. Drew, Mike Lowell, and Jason Varitek go deep with two outs in the third inning at Fenway off Yankee starter Chase Wright. J.D. Drew was also part of the quartet of the 2006 Dodgers, who were the fourth major league team to connect for four straight round-trippers in one frame.

  1. I’m still smarting over second and third with no outs and we couldn’t push even one over.

  2. Top of the order didn’t do squate. Hard to win when your best hitters totally whiff.

    • While it works both ways, it’s tougher on a team as disciplined as the Dodgers.

    • Me neither. I was just thinking that. It also forces our batters to swing at balls, like Barnes just did.

  3. I’m convinced that, with their ball/strike calls, MLB umpires are angling for early retirement buyouts.

  4. Hosmer may be annoying, but Grisham is truly irritating – and not just because of that.

  5. With major and minor injuries, Dodgers are missing Joc and Quique. That said, Joc went on the IL today.

  6. No eyes, no ears, but Neuse has now struck out four times in five ABs as a Dodger. It’s a very small sample size, but I don’t think it’s going to get much bigger for him.

  7. From Houston Mitchell’s column in the L.A. Times:
    Last Saturday, the Dodgers went three for 30 in a 2-0 victory over San Diego.
    Sunday, they went three for 30 in a 5-2 loss to the Padres.
    Monday, they went five for 31 in a 4-3 loss to Seattle.
    Tuesday, they went two for 28 in a 2-0 victory.
    Luckily, outstanding pitching has allowed them to split those four games, but overall they are hitting .109 (13 for 119) in that span

  8. Excellent top of the first for Buehler. Let’s put a crooked number on the scoreboard now.
