Dodgers at Giants, 12:45 PM PDT, TV: NBCS BA, SPNLA
LHP David Price (4-0, 3.35 ERA) takes the hill for the Dodgers. He’ll face RHP Johnny Cueto (6-5, 4.09 ERA) of the Giants.
Today in Dodgers’ history:
- 1915 Pirates third baseman Honus Wagner reaches Robins hurler Jeff Pfeffer for a grand slam in the eighth inning, helping Pittsburgh beat Brooklyn at Forbes Field, 8-2. The inside-the-park round-tripper makes the 41 year-old infielder the oldest player ever to hit a home run with the bases full, a record which will last until 1985.
- 1996 After a mild heart attack last month, Tommy Lasorda, 68 year-old Dodger manager of twenty years, announces his retirement due to his health. The future Hall of Fame skipper, who was named the National League Manager of the Year in 1983 and ’88, led Los Angeles to four pennants and two World Series championships during his 21 seasons at the helm.0
