Padres at Dodgers, 7:10 PM PDT, TV: Bally Sports San Diego, SPNLA
LHP Blake Snell (0-5, 5.60 ERA) takes the mound for the Friars and RHP Tony Gonsolin (9-0, 1.58 ERA) pitches for the Dodgers. Snell’s record is startlingly bad for a former Cy Young winner (2018 while with the Rays). On the other hand, against the Dodgers he’s been very good over his career:
- 1-0, 1.75 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 33 strikeouts in six regular season starts (25.2 innings)
- 0-0, 2.70 ERA, 0.80 WHIP and 18 strikeouts in two World Series starts (10 innings)
Gonsolin was on the hook to lose his last start despite giving up just one run in 5 2/3 innings. Fortunately for him the Dodgers came back to tie the game against the Braves and then won it in the 11th inning.
Today in Dodgers’ history:
- 1968 Bob Gibson’s scoreless inning streak ends abruptly at 47 with a questionable call when the official scorer rules a wild pitch, and not a passed ball, allowed Len Gabrielson to score in the first inning of the Cardinals’ 5-1 victory over the Dodgers at Chavez Ravine. Without the hometown decision, the Redbird right-hander, who will blank San Francisco in his next start, would have been within three innings of breaking the mark of 58 scoreless frames established in June by Don Drysdale, tonight’s losing pitcher.
- 2011 Dee Gordon, in the seventh inning of a 5-0 inter-league victory over the Angels in Anaheim, steals second and third base, and then completes the stolen base cycle by swiping home. The Dodger shortstop becomes the 40th major leaguer to accomplish the trifecta in the same frame.
