Dodgers at Rockies, 5:40 PM PDT, TV: ATT SportsNet RM, SPNLA
The visiting Dodgers send LHP Julio Urías (11-3, 3.64 ERA) to the Coors Field hill to face the Rockies’ RHP Antonio Senzatela (2-8, 4.58 ERA).
This day in Dodgers’ history:
- 1913 In a game against the Cubs, Superbas’ second baseman George Cutshaw handles 14 chances without an error. The infielder’s defensive prowess helps Brooklyn beat Chicago at Ebbets Field, 4-2.
- 1948 Brooklyn’s Branch Rickey agrees on a deal with Giants owner Horace Stoneham that releases his manager Leo Durocher to become the Giants’ skipper, replacing the popular Mel Ott. Burt Shotton will take the ‘Lip’s’ place in the Dodger dugout.
On this date in 1990 Steve Lyons embarrassed himself dreadfully by dropping his uniform pants while standing at first base after sliding into the bag to beat out a bunt.
