Dodgers at Rockies, 5:30 PM PDT, TV: ATT SportsNet RM, SPNLA
LHP Clayton Kershaw (5-1, 2.00 ERA) pitches for the Dodgers, facing LHP Kyle Freeland (3-5, 4.29 ERA). Kershaw is 11-6 lifetime at Coors with a 4.57 ERA in 145 innings. Freeland pitched against the Dodgers on Opening Day in April and took the loss when he gave up five runs on five hits in 3 2/3 innings.
Today in Dodgers’ history:
- 1969 After ending an 11-game losing streak in their previous contest, the expansion Padres are the victims of a 19-0 shutout for the second time this season when Dodgers right-hander Don Drysdale equals the National League-record for the largest margin of victory in a shutout. L.A. will score more than half of their runs when they tally ten times in the third inning.
- 2000 The Rockies draw their 20 millionth fan to one ballpark faster than any other team in major league history. Taking less than six years, Colorado eclipses the Dodgers’ mark of taking nine years in two stadiums to reach the milestone.
- 2008 In Chavez Ravine, the Dodgers, without the benefit of a hit for the entire game, defeat the Angels, 1-0. The combined losing effort of Halo hurlers Jered Weaver and Jose Arredondo isn’t considered officially as a no-hitter because the home team didn’t have to bat in the ninth (a nitpick if I ever heard one).
