Cubs at Dodgers, 7:10 PM PDT, TV: Marquee Sports Network, SPNLA
The Cubs send former ace RHP Jake Arrieta (5-8, 5.43 ERA) out to face the Dodgers’ RHP Tony Gonsolin (0-0, 3.00 ERA).
Today in Dodgers’ history:
- 1968 Bobby Bonds hits a grand slam in his third at-bat of his first major league game, going deep off Dodger right-hander John Purdin in the Giants’ 9-0 victory at Candlestick Park. The 22 year-old Giant outfielder joins Philadelphia National pitcher Bill Duggelby (1898 – first at-bat) as the only other player to hit a base-loaded home run in his major league debut.
- 1984 Dodger infielder Bill Russell plays his 1,953rd game to become the team’s leader in games played. The shortstop, who will extend the mark to 2181 during his 18-year tenure with the club, is hitless in three trips to the plate but will walk twice in LA’s 9-4 loss to San Diego at Chavez Ravine.
Lineup when available.
