Dodgers at Braves, 4:15 PM PDT, TV: Fox
The visiting Dodgers send RHP Mitch White (1-1, 3.86 ERA) to the mound to face the Braves’ LHP Max Fried (7-2, 2.77 ERA). White has bounced between AAA Oklahoma City and the major league club this year; this will be his third start of the month for the Dodgers. In the first two he went five innings each time and gave up just three earned runs in those ten innings. Fried is fresh off a win in arbitration (they were only $250K apart; why the Braves thought that was worth fighting for eludes me); on the field he’s 2-0 in June. The last time he faced the Dodgers was in April; he went seven innings, gave up just two hits and no runs and got the win.
The Dodgers activated IF Hanser Alberto from the paternity list, recalled RHP Mitch White, designated OF Stefen Romero for assignment and placed RHP Daniel Hudson on the injured list with torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Today in Dodgers’ history:
- 1968 Bobby Bonds hits a grand slam in his third at-bat of his first major league game, going deep off Dodger right-hander John Purdin in the Giants’ 9-0 victory at Candlestick Park. The 22 year-old Giant outfielder joins Philadelphia National pitcher Bill Duggelby (1898 – first at-bat) as the only other player to hit a base-loaded home run in his major league debut.
- 1984 Dodger infielder Bill Russell plays his 1,953rd game to become the team’s leader in games played. The shortstop, who will extend the mark to 2181 during his 18-year tenure with the club, is hitless in three trips to the plate but will walk twice in LA’s 9-4 loss to San Diego at Chavez Ravine.

Bucknor as bad as Angel Hernandez.
Decent first for Mitchell, despite the BB and deep fly ball.
Apparently, the Busted Poseur rule does not apply in México – or at least Phlablo doesn’t think so. https://twitter.com/barstoolsports/status/1540476810101751808?s=20&t=5frYDqNBCITsiRQCnOXK-g
Player comparison. I found this interesting.
Category……………. AB R H HR RBI SB AVG OBP OPS
Corey Seager…….. 267 35 61 15 32 3 .228 .300 .731
Cody Bellinger……..239 31 50 9 27 9 .209 .272 .665
Phillies beat the Padres, 4-2.
2 for 11 RISP, 7 LOB. 16 SO. And a crap umpire.
Not pleased, but not devastated either.
Drat it. We’ll see ’em again tomorrow afternoon on ESPN.
No, tomorrow’s a blackout.
Bummer. Whip’em tomorrow.
Max helps him out.
That pitch to Belli was not a strike. Why are umpires not graded on their performance and told to shape up?
It wasn’t close.
But they are.
Cody gets hosed.
Time for Kenley to blow one.
I still like Brewster, but not in the highest leverage situations.
Brewster’s not quite ready for prime time, apparently.
No. He is not.
So much for that.
100 mph meatball from Graterol.
How is that even possible?
Thompson and Alberto to the rescue. For the Braves.
Oh fine. Alberto, 3 Ks tonight too.
Thompson, 3 Ks in a row.
Who is in the booth with Joe?
I think you’re right.
Sounds too positive and analytical to be Smoltz, which would have been my first guess.
Unless he has changed his shtick.
Taylor got hosed.
I am disappointed it wasn’t off Will Smith.
A Willy Dilly..
It looks as if Phillips wants to step into Hudson’s role.
Price did well enough as well.
He did indeed.
We kould see Kenley in the ninth.
Joc got to him a couple of days ago.
Oh man, talk about chasing. Freddie, Freddie, Freddie.
Got hosed on strike 2.
Maybe, but strike three was way low and outside and he went fishing.
Without any bait on his hook
Where the ump said the fish were striking.
Had to defend against the low pitch and that got him to go after the one like you said, the ump said there was fish.
Freddie with the bases juiced. Atlanta fans probably have mixed emotions.
Drama in the ballpark!
Thompson and Alberto really showed badly there, and Bellinger and Barnes did well.
Turner, Bellinger, Barnes late inning rally. Who knew?
Will Smith (pitcher) has been more an arsonist than a fireman lately.
Well, what do you know.
Great AB by Belli there.
A harder pitch for him to hit would have been up and in. He didn’t try to do too much and was rewarded.
Go with the pitch Belli
Truly terrible AB by Hanser.
The opposite of Muncy as far as swinging goes.
That’s more like the Trayce we expected to see.
He and Belli are there for their defense I guess.
RALLY TIME!! Clap…Clap
Poor pitch choice by Vesia and Barnes.
Didn’t need to catch so much of the plate.
Mitch did pretty good. Hope the pen can bail him out (and the offense gets going).
Big fly to the big fly catcher.
Had he gotten into a game before being DFA’d, it would have been Stefen Romero’s first MLB appearance since 2016 with Seatle. He spent 2017-2021 playing in Japan and was with OKC this year. As it stands now, Stefen Romero and Cesar Romero have both now played in the same amount of games for the Dodgers: zero.
