Game 35, 2022

Diamondbacks at Dodgers, 12:10 PM PDT, TV: BS Arizona, SPNLA

LHP Tyler Gilbert (0-1, 2.08 ERA) starts for the D-Backs in the first half of a day-night doubleheader; RHP Ryan Pepiot (0-0, 0.00 ERA) does the same for the Dodgers. This will be Gilbert’s third start of the year; he lost the first and in the second he faced the Dodgers, went three innings, gave up two hits and one run and got no decision. Pepiot will be making his second big league start; in his first he went three innings, walked five and struck out three but gave up just one hit and no runs.

Today in Dodgers’ history:

  • 1947 At Forbes Field, Hank Greenberg asks Jackie Robinson if the Dodger infielder was hurt in a collision with him at first base earlier in the game and then tells the embattled Brooklyn rookie, “Stick in there. You’re doing fine. Keep your chin up.” Jackie will remark to the writers a few days later that his “diamond hero” is Hank Greenberg, knowing that the Pirates’ first baseman, who due to the bigotry endured as a Jew, can appreciate his difficulty of facing racial injustice every day as the first black player in the major leagues this century.
  • 1978 Pinch-hitting for Davey Lopes in the Los Angeles 10-1 rout of the Pirates, Lee Lacy goes deep in the bottom of the eighth inning off Will McEnaney at Dodger Stadium. The utility player becomes the first player in major league history to homer in three consecutive at-bats as a pinch hitter.
  • 1992 Using only 21 dates, the Blue Jays reach the one-million mark in attendance sooner than any team in major league history. The 1991 Blue Jays and the 1981 Dodgers shared the previous record.

  1. On September 11, 1966, I attended a DH at Dodger Stadium. Koufax blanked the Trashtros 4-0 in the first game, then Joe Moeller, Bob Miller and Phil Regan combined on a 1-0 shutout in game two.

  2. JT not hitting except when he does. OPS with RISP coming into the game of 1.006 in those situations. His 25 RBI place him among the leaders in the NL

  3. Kimbrel threw 28 pitches there. Might not see him again the rest of this series.

  4. I forgot how much the DBacks like to play – and lose 1 run games. Let’s do this.

  5. This team will be scary if JT, Muncy, and Belli start to hit consistently.

    • It’s in the Umps hip pocket I guess. He pulls it out only if he needs it.

  6. If this was the last couple of years – the Dodgers would have just won game 1 of the 7 inning doubleheader.

  7. I thought Hanser was supposed to be a good contact guy. He is having trouble contacting his glove and the ball.

  8. I’ve been walking and listening. Home just in time for the HR parade!!!! WOOT!

    • Decent effort. One bad pitch. Still too many walks. Kept us in the game.

      • Better ball-strike ration than previous outing, and went deeper into game. However, still not quite ready for prime time.

  9. As soon as Smith had the PB – I knew the DBacks would capitalize.
