Game 127, 2021

Dodgers at Padres, 7:10 PM PDT, TV: Bally Sports SD, SPNLA

RHP Walker Buehler (13-2, 2.11 ERA) goes for the visiting Dodgers. He’ll face LHP Blake Snell (6-5, 4.82 ERA).

On this day in Dodgers’ history:

  • 1979 In a Hollywood Stars vs. the Media game played at Dodger Stadium, Robin Williams, the star of the hit television series, Mork and Mindy, a show in which he plays an alien, runs the bases backwards. The comedian explains circling the bags clockwise is very common on the Planet Ork, his character’s home in the universe.
  • 1995 At Veterans Stadium, Gregg Jefferies hits for the cycle when Philadelphia crushes the Dodgers, 17-4. The Phillies’ first baseman, who has four RBIs and scores four runs, collects all of his extra-base hits off of LA starting pitcher Hideo Nomo.
  • 2008 After being swept in a four-game series earlier in the month in L.A., the Phillies return the favor, beating the Dodgers, 5-0, to complete its own four-game sweep. It is the first time in franchise history that Philadelphia has swept the Dodgers in a four-game series at home.
  • 2009 With a 5-4 win in ten innings over the Dodgers, the Rockies move 18 games over .500 for the first time in franchise history. The wild-card leader, winning 52 of their last 74 games, the latest on a Troy Tulowitzki bases-loaded single, has cut LA’s Western Division lead from 15.5 games on June 3 to just two games.
  • 2012 In a nine-player blockbuster trade, the Dodgers obtain Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett, Carl Crawford, Nick Punto, and cash considerations for James Loney, Allen Webster, Ivan De Jesus, Jr., and two players to be named later (Rubby De La Rosa and Jerry Sands). The deal gives the new Dodgers ownership an opportunity to show their fans they are serious about making a run for the postseason, while giving an under-performing Boston team more financial flexibility in the offseason.

Lineup when available.

  1. That was an epic. It also, despite the abominable ghost runner rule, made a strong case for abolishing the DH.

  2. Had to turn the game off around the 13th. Couldn’t sleep anyway. It’s a lovely morning!

  3. The ESPN replay of this game is scheduled for 4:00am here. I can watch it again. LOL

  4. So Dodgers get a hit with runner in scoring position and can’t even move him to third.

  5. Ten straight times these two teams have had a man on second with none out and failed to score. I doubt that will ever happen again under this strange rule.

  6. We’re in vacation in Hawaii. I don’t think my wife is crazy about my disappearing act tonight. I turned on the game in the 10th or 11th inning. That seems a lifetime ago.

  7. That just plain sucks bigtime. We are breaking records for bad extra inning behavior right and left. It’s almost impossible to be this ineffective.

    • Exxxxxxxhausting. One of those games where it seems we are playing under an unlucky star.

  8. I wonder how many times the Dodgers have gone 11 innings and not allowed an earned run and not won.

  9. Smith blew it on that last pitch. Tried to put it out of the park. Should have stroked it.

  10. Kenleys’ one thousandth strikeout.

  12. Nike k Kenley.
    The clock has struck midnight for me. I can’t keep my eyes open any longer.
    Bring it on home Dodgers.

  13. I’m thinking Mookie should be moved back to lead off and Trea should hit second. Thoughts?
