Game 60, 2022

Dodgers at Giants, 1:10 PM PDT, TV: NBCS BA, SPNLA

LHP Julio Urías (3-5, 2.78 ERA) takes the mound for the Dodgers in an attempt to avert a sweep of the three-game series by the Giants. He’ll face LHP Carlos Rodón (4-4, 3.51 ERA), who didn’t make it into the fifth inning in his last start, mostly because the Rockies he faced fouled off “33 of the 98 pitches they saw. It was particularly noteworthy with Rodón’s go-to fastball; he threw 56 of them and got 20 foul balls to just two swinging strikes.”

Today in Dodgers’ history:

  • 1940 In a trade which stuns the baseball world, the Dodgers obtain Ducky Medwick and pitcher Curt Davis from the Cardinals for outfielder Ernie Koy, pitcher Carl Doyle, two minor leaguers, and $125,000. The deal to acquire the 1937 Triple Crown winner, which is engineered by GM Larry MacPhail, signals the emergence of Brooklyn as a serious contender.
  • 1941 The Braves break up the Waners’ brother act, sending Lloyd, known as ‘Little Poison’, to the Reds for pitcher Johnny Hutchings. ‘Big Poison’ Paul, the older sibling, was signed as a free agent with the team after being released by the Dodgers last month.
  • 2005 Hee-Seop Choi homers in his first three at-bats in the Dodgers’ 4-3 victory over Minnesota. The southpaw-swinging first baseman’s solo shot in the sixth off Brad Radke, who also gave up the infielder’s first two home runs, proves to be the difference in the Chavez Ravine contest.

  1. Padres beat the Cubs, 4-1, Monday night. The Dodgers’ lead over San Diego is down to percentage points.

  2. Now we can listen to Roberts talk about how hard the guys are working and he is not worried about their poor hitting. Everybody gets a trophy.

  3. Hey, gang. I just got home from umpiring a 14-and-under game that ended 3-0. What score did the Dodgers win by?

  4. US women win the Curtis Cup in golf. And they are more fun to watch than our current Dodgers.

  5. We have guests for an early garden dinner, so you may not hear from me until tomorrow.

  6. From what I can see, except
    for the first inning hiccup, Julio has been terrific. But where is our offense?!?!?!

    • In retrospect, whatever the outcome of this game, the series is likely to be the high point of the Gnats’ season.

  7. Buehler’s ERA went over 4 on Friday, Kershaw’s over 2 yesterday, Urias’s over 3 today (at least for the moment).

  8. We sure don’t waste any time in falling behind, or in not moving up runners. Luckily, I will be departing this forum shortly, as I have a game to umpire. I hope to see real situational hitting there.

    • We will be watching you on TV and checking if your strike calls are inside the box.

      • I will not miss a single strike/ball call from behind the plate today, as I am the base umpire! (Two-umpire team).

    • This team is hard to watch right now.. Just about everyone is underperforming. Playing sloppy lackadasical baseball.

      • One of the issues that I have with Roberts is that he seems to lack the ability to fire up a team playing just as you describe. What would Lasorda do?

  9. Can’t even move the runner over. Geez. Do these guys know what situational hitting is?

  10. Yesterday wasn’t fun, but at least we were able to commiserate with each other in the comments.

    Today’s another blackout day, here, so I’m stuck with Gameday and audio. Thanks, Manfred!

  11. I will be watching out of the corner of one eye as I attend a zoom meeting for the first half of this game. Hoping not to be grumpy as a result.

  12. During the course of a 162-game season, certain contests are more important than others. Today’s is one of those.
