Angels at Dodgers, 7:10 PM PDT, TV: BS West, SPNLA
LHP Reid Detmers (2-2, 3.83 ERA) is on the bump for the Angels while LHP Tyler Anderson (7-0, 3.07 ERA) takes the mound for the Dodgers. Detmers was the 10th pick in the first round of the 2020 draft; he made his major league debut in August of 2021. He’s made ten appearances this season, all starts. Anderson has, with Gonsolin, been a very pleasant surprise for the Dodgers, who’ve needed all the help they could get in the rotation with Kershaw’s and Heaney’s absences, and the Tony and Tyler show has given it to them.
Today in Dodgers’ history:
- 1938 In the first night game played in New York City, Johnny Vander Meer pitches his second consecutive no-hitter, beating the Dodgers at Brooklyn’s Ebbets Field, 6-0. Four days ago, the Reds’ southpaw held the Braves hitless in a 3-0 victory at Crosley Field.
- 1951 The Cubs trade Andy Pafko along with Johnny Schmitz, Wayne Terwilliger, and Rube Walker to the Dodgers for Bruce Edwards, Joe Hatten, Eddie Miksis, and Gene Hermanski. The deal, which prevents the coveted ‘Handy Andy’ from going to the rival Giants, is the first of many to be made by Buzzy Bavasi, Brooklyn’s new general manager.
- 1996 In the first inning of their 6-2 victory over the Braves, the Dodgers turn their first triple play in forty-seven years. After making a running, back-to-the-plate grab of Chipper Jones’s popup to short left with runners on first and second, Juan Castro throws to second baseman Delino Deshields to double up Marquis Grissom, then the ball is relayed to first baseman Eric Karros to get Mark Lemke, who was also running on the pitch.
