Game 46, 2021

Dodgers at Giants, 4:15 PM PDT, TV: Fox

RHP Walker Buehler (2-0, 2.98 ERA) pitches for the Dodgers. He’ll face old friend LHP Scott Kazmir (0-0, 0.00 ERA), who’s replacing the injured Logan Webb.

Today in Dodgers’ history:

  • 1998 The Mets trade Preston Wilson, Geoff Goetz, and Ed Yarnell to the Marlins for Mike Piazza. Florida had acquired the All-Star catcher last week from the Dodgers along with Todd Zeile in exchange for Gary Sheffield, Bobby Bonilla, Charles Johnson, Jim Eisenreich, and Manuel Barrios.
  • 1999 Mark McGwire becomes the third player to launch a ball out of Dodger Stadium when one of his two home runs travels 483 feet in the Cardinals’ 10-7 victory at Chavez Ravine. The slugging first baseman joins Willie Stargell, who accomplished the feat twice in 1969 and 1973, and Mike Piazza, whose Ruthian blast cleared the ballpark two seasons ago.

  1. Just read that we are still paying Kazmir. $8M a year. Geez, what a terrible signing that was. One of AF’s few bad mistakes.

  2. Jansen picks up career save 323. He is one behind Huston Street for 19th all time.

  3. Albert flashing all the signs. Barrels overrated. Dunking on the pitcher. Lol

    • Has never gone less than six and averages 93 pitches per game. The boy once over 100.

  4. I was ambivalent about Bauer’s acquisition, but enjoyed his full Lasorda.

  5. Coming into the game, Max was leading the NL in WAR among position players.

  6. I loathe Fox, but at least it’s not a blackout and we have Dodger commentators in Joe Davis and Karros.
