Game 70, 2022

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.

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.

  1. 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

    • A harder pitch for him to hit would have been up and in. He didn’t try to do too much and was rewarded.

  2. Mitch did pretty good. Hope the pen can bail him out (and the offense gets going).

  3. 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.
