Padres at Dodgers, 4:15 PM PDT, TV: FOX
The visiting Padres send RHP Yu Darvish (7-3, 3.26 ERA) out to do battle with the Dodgers’ LHP Tyler Anderson (8-1, 3.23 ERA). Darvish has a 1.61 ERA over his last four starts. He got no decision in the last one, giving up seven hits and three runs over six innings to the Phillies, who came back to win against the Padres’ bullpen. Anderson took his first loss of the year in his last start, giving up ten hits and four runs in six innings to the Rockies.
Today in Dodgers’ history:
- 1962 Johnny Podres ties a major league mark record, striking out eight consecutive batters in LA’s 5-1 victory over Philadelphia. The 29 year-old southpaw’s streak begins with the third out in the top of the fourth frame and ends after the first out in the seventh inning of the Dodger Stadium contest.
- 1995 Dodger right-hander Hideo Nomo, who is leading the National League in strikeouts, becomes the first player from Japan to be selected for the major league All-Star game. As the starter for the Senior Circuit, the 26 year-old rookie tosses two scoreless innings in the National League’s 3-2 victory over their American League rivals at The Ballpark in Arlington.
- 2019 The Dodgers overcome a 4-3 deficit with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning when the Diamondbacks’ bullpen walks five consecutive batters, including Cody Bellinger’s base-on-balls forcing in the winning run. The last time the Chavez Ravine club got a walk-off win with a walk was when Bellinger drew the fourth consecutive free pass issued by the Royals relievers, plating the winning run in a 5-4 extra-inning victory in 2017.
