Dodgers at Reds, 3:40 PM PDT, TV: Bally Sports Ohio, SPNLA
LHP Tyler Anderson (8-0, 2.82 ERA) is the second undefeated pitcher the Dodgers can throw at their opponents along with Gonsolin; he’ll face the Reds’ RHP Luis Castillo (2-4, 3.33 ERA). In his past six outings, Castillo is 2-3 with a 2.72 ERA and has made four straight quality starts. Castillo has given previous Dodgers teams fits:
Castillo will face the Dodgers for the first time since tossing 6 1/3 shutout innings on Sept. 17, 2021, and earning a 3-1 victory. Lifetime in four starts vs. Los Angeles, Castillo is 3-0 with a 1.90 ERA and a .195 opponents’ batting average.
In 10 starts, Anderson has pitched through or past the fifth inning eight times. He has a season average of 5.2 frames per outing, and he has earned a quality start five times in those 10 starts.
The Dodgers haven’t won more than two games in a row since late May, the LA Times tells us.
Today in Dodgers’ history:
- 1936 At Brooklyn’s Ebbets Field, Ival Goodman hits an unusual home run when his fifth-inning fly ball lands and stays on top of the scoreboard in right field. With the perched ball considered in play, the three Dodger outfielders watch the Reds’ right fielder round the bases for an easy inside-the park round-tripper in their 7-2 loss to Cincinnati.
- 1947 After pitching a no-hitter four days ago against the Braves, Reds hurler Ewell Blackwell loses his chance for a second consecutive no-hitter when Dodger second baseman Eddie Stanky singles with one out the ninth inning at Crosley Field.
- 1959 Sandy Koufax goes the distance, beating Philadelphia at the L.A. Memorial Coliseum, 6-2. The Dodger southpaw fans 16 Phillies to set a new record for strikeouts in a night game.
- 1966 At the Astrodome, Houston sets a home attendance mark which will last for 22 years. Dodger southpaw Sandy Koufax, who tosses a complete game to improve his record to 13-2, beats the hometown team, 5-2, in front of the 50,908 fans attending the Wednesday contest.
