Dodgers at Rockies, 5:00 PM PDT, TV: ATT SportsNet RM, SPNLA
RHP Walker Buehler (9-1, 2.36 ERA) goes for the visiting Dodgers and LHP Kyle Freeland (1-3, 5.48 ERA) goes for the home Rockies.
Today in Dodgers’ history:
- 1954 With Jim Gilliam (2b), Jackie Robinson (3b), Sandy Amoros (lf), Roy Campanella (c), and Don Newcombe (p) in the starting lineup against the Braves, the Dodgers field the first team which consists of a majority of black players. The historic five helps Brooklyn to beat Milwaukee at County Stadium, 2-1.
- 1964 In Los Angeles, the Chavez Ravine contest becomes the first Pay-TV baseball game as Subscription Television offers the cablecast to subscribers for a fee. The Dodgers beat Chicago, 3-2, with Don Drysdale collecting 10 strikeouts.
- 1976 Walter Alston becomes the sixth skipper to win 2,000 games when the Dodgers overcome a four-run first inning deficit and beat Chicago at Chavez Ravine, 5-4. ‘Smokey’ will leave at the end of the season, finishing his 23-year tenure in his only managerial position in the majors with a 2,040-1,613 record (.558).

Woo-HOO!!! I was driving down from Carpenteria but got to hear the final third of the game. Go Dodgers!
We were driving up from Pacific Grove, but got home in time to watch it all.
I was in a driving rain in rural Virginia.
Sure hope Mookie is OK.
Sounds like he is OK and will rest tomorrow and be ready for the G’nats on Monday. Whew!!
Where is RBI?
Driving down from a grandchild visit at Carpenteria. Woot!
Looks like Dodgers will be one game back of first place by the end of the night.
Belli and Lux. Couldn’t get a hit at a blackjack table.
I’m irritated with lots of things.
Irritation sounds not too bad
It sounds as if it could have been worse. I fell on my hip a couple months ago and it still bothers me a bit.
This is bad.
Did mookie hurt himself legging out the double?
He slowed down running and barely made it to second on his own.
That’s not good
Ferris is looking sharper now.
Gnats hang on to lose 3-1 despite getting first two runners on in ninth.
Ferris is not at his sharpest tonight.
After 6-1/2 in Missouri, Redbirds gobbling up Gnats 3-1.
Just got home from a stylishly bad hotel in Pacific Grove where, fortunately, we spent only one night. Got to watch most of last night’s game before a really good dinner, though.
Every game today is free on MLBTV.
It looked appealing but it was awful. An awkwardly renovated Victorian.
